operations in the region with the launch of Diethelm Travel Singapore.
This new venture expands the group to twelve countries; Bhutan,
Cambodia, China, India, Laos, Malaysia, Maldives, Myanmar, Singapore,
Sri Lanka, Thailand, Vietnam.
Chief Executive Officer of DTG, John Watson,
said, "Our customers frequently ask us to operate in Singapore. It
is an important crossroads for the world as well as a fine tourism
destination in its' own right. We thought long and hard about the
launch of this business given the current economic slowdown
globally but, having found the right partners in Uniglobal
Holidays, we feel this is the right time to proceed with a
strategic investment in this key market. We have worked with
Uniglobal for many years and they have an excellent reputation for
quality service delivery."
DTG will hold majority ownership
and management control in Diethelm Travel Singapore in partnership
with Victor Yam, the current Managing Director of Uniglobal. Under
the terms of the agreement Uniglobal will transfer their existing
non-Russian inbound business into the new company. Uniglobal will
continue to trade but focussed purely on the Russian and CIS
Victor Yam said, "We are delighted to partner with
a company such as Diethelm Travel. They have such a strong network
and are recognised for excellence in everything they do."
Diethelm Travel Singapore will be launched on 1st July, 2009 and
Eric Yap has been appointed as Managing Director of the new joint
venture reporting to Richard Brouwer, COO, DTG.
