SINGAPORE -- Singapore's tech unicorn Grab will remain focused on Southeast Asian markets even after it goes public in the U.S., co-founder and CEO Anthony Tan told Nikkei, citing "massive" room for growth in a region that has drawn attention from international investors.

Noting that investors describe Southeast Asia's most valuable unlisted company as a combination of tech names like Uber Technologies and Ant Financial, Tan stressed Grab will scale up its existing core businesses such as food delivery and digital finance.
