MANILA -- Philippine e-commerce company Great Deals has raised $30 million as the pandemic sparks a boom in the country's digital economy.

The fresh capital will fund the construction of an automated warehouse that can handle a million transactions daily, and lays the groundwork for an overseas expansion that is set to begin in the next few years, Great Deals founder and CEO Steve Sy told Nikkei Asia.
