Asian countries remain key to Coca-ColaÔÇÖs growth


Despite a slight slowdown in Chinese growth, Coca-Cola’s profits increased by four percent compared to 2011, with Asia continuing to represent a key component of the firm’s success.

Particular areas of substantial growth during this period have included Thailand, where sales have jumped by 19 percent, and India, which has experienced a 15 percent rise. This growth comes after the company has already unveiled plans to increase its investment in the region in a bid to boost its market share.

Earlier this year the company announced plans to invest $5 billion in India over a period of eight years, while 2012 has also seen it re-enter the Burmese market after a gap of 60 years following the lifting of sanctions by the US government.
