The head of Asian operations for the world's largest consumer products maker says Procter & Gamble Co. is making solid progress on ambitious goals in the region that has half the world's population.
Asia Group president Deb Henretta tells The Associated Press that growth in the company's business there has picked up speed.
The Tide maker's goal to double annual revenue to $175 billion in 15 years counts on putting many more babies in China in Pampers and washing more hair in India with Pantene.
Henretta's mission is to get Asians buying Tide detergent, Pamper diapers and Gillette shavers at the same rate as consumers in Mexico — about $20 per person a year. Doing so would add some $50 billion in sales.
