Growth in Asia remained significant, where revenue increased 38 percent compared with Q2 2009, with all countries contributing. We continued to invest in our brands and distribution in all key markets. In China, we continued to expand our Dulux stores network with point of sale tinting and launched Dulux Guardian Odorless Washability. In South East Asia, we further invested in advertising and promotion to accelerate growth and win market share. In Indonesia, we launched an initiative aimed at preserving the splendor of iconic buildings. The first structure to be painted under this scheme was the Balai Permuda in Surabaya. Growth in India also accelerated during the quarter, where Dulux Super Smooth and improved Velvet touch were successfully launched.
