Four news stories for YOU this Thursday evening!
Puma, who has 79% of goods supplied from Asia, is looking to increase its speed and flexibility of sourcing by moving production closer to the west in places such as Turkey, eastern Europe and Mexico. Also, Indonesia coffee sales may fall but come the World Cup starting in June, the demand may be boosted by football fans staying up late. Sadly, there was more bloodshed on the Independence Square in Kiev (although a truce was agreed) as skirmishes broke out and resulted in more than 60 deaths.
Finally in Malaysia, Next Bike Sdn Bhd has planned to open 5 Ducati 3S (sales, service and spare parts) centres by the year end in KL, Sabah, Sarawak, Johor and Kelantan, with about RM5 billion allocated for the project.
