In 2009, the market of direct sales for Amway

products will not be affected
The financial crisis isn"t affecting the direct sales market anywhere
near as badly as other economic sectors. This is what George Popescu,
the director of "Amway" Romania, maintains: "The crisis is on everyone"s
mind and it is indeed making its presence felt all over the economy. In
our sector, the effects are not as significant, because we don"t have to
make big investments like in the industrial sector. Our customers will buy
because they need our products, they are not something one can easily
do without".

He further explained: "In difficult times, people are looking for

alternative income sources, and one of them is direct sales. The initial
investment of a distributor - private <Amway> entrepreneur- is
approximately 100 Euros, which can provide them good earnings in the
coming years, without interfering with their main job".

In Romania, the company distributes most of the products manufactured in the America, with the best sellers being
cosmetics and dietary supplements. The best sellers among cosmetic products are the skin care products.

An important feature of the dietary supplements, sold under the Nutrilite brand (with over 3 billion dollars in sales in
2008), is that they are produced using plants grown in organic farms, which can fight the effects of bad dietary habits.

"Interest in healthcare has seen a dramatic increase these last few years. We can gauge this by the volume of sales of
five specific products, including Double X, Daily, Omega3 complex", George Popescu said.

He further added: "We are optimistic for 2009. We"ve had good results so far this year, and we are looking to increase
our sales by 10-20% compared to 2008. It all depends on the exchange rate and the consumers" purchasing power".
