Strikingly, the US Union of Concerned Scientists has calculated that if the last missile launched by North Korea -- in November -- had flown on a standard trajectory, rather than a lofted one, it would have had a range of 13,000 kilometres, which is enough to strike Europe, Australia, or any part of continental US.

However, the development the company has witnessed has not followed a standard trajectory. Andy Holmes, Gruppo Campari's global travel retail director, says whereas most development in growing economies is typically driven by the whole market moving in one particular direction, in the Middle East development has been less linear because the forces that shape it are much more diverse.
