International quick notes

Unilever is planning expansion and growth in India and other developing markets: "The Asia and Africa market saw a 5% volume growth for Unilever in the third quarter, compared to 3.1% in Europe and 2.7% in North America."

Also in India, following up on this post from a couple weeks ago, the Wal-Mart/Bharti venture is being looked at by the Prime Minister's office. Thus far, the departments responsible have cleared the proposal, but the government is expecting push-back from opposition parties and from retailers.
