Unicharm’s Indonesian subsidiary has been improving its performance rapidly as demand for disposable goods has increased. Demand for feminine hy­giene items and baby diapers has been driven by increased income levels among people in the ASEAN countries.

Between 2008 and 2009, the subsidiary is expecting to increase sales from ¥8.5 billion to ¥12 billion.
