Costco is doing great job in making sure that revenues constantly grow as shown below while maintaining a proportional amount of expenses to keep the profits the same or a little high from the previous year. Keeping these numbers high during a recessionary period is a very impressive feat by the management of Costco. One number to point out is that 2009 was a down year for Costco, all of the above ratios were lower than in 2008, but they bounced back in 2010 and in 2011.

The campaign successfully established India as a high-end tourist destination, generating a 16% increase in tourist traffic in the first year. According to spending data released by Visa Asia Pacific in March 2006, India emerged as the fastest-growing market in the Asia-Pacific in terms of international tourist spending.

China, which came second in the region, was successful in making international tourists fork out US$ 784 million in Q4 2005, a growth of 23% over its Q4 2004 figures.
