Boots on the ground in Asian beauty expansion scheme

Alliance Boots, the British pharmacy and beauty store chain, has announced plans for a three- to five-fold expansion in Asia over the next five years.

The company has only two Asian operations in Thailand and China and their contributions to the global total remain small.

However, Asia is becoming more of a focus for Boots in the face of an EU anti-trust regulation that is preventing it from buying more businesses in many European countries.
