Asia demand drives Samsonite luggage sales

Samsonite International SA, the world’s biggest luggage maker, expects its Asian sales to grow 20 percent this year, outpacing growth in Europe and the U.S., due to strong travel from China and other emerging countries.

The company, which is present in 60 major mainland Chinese cities is looking at 140 less developed locations over the next two years. It plans to add 25 more points of sale in 2012 as it expands further in the country.
