on Wednesday said it is taking local units of GlaxoSmithKline and Swiss
healthcare company Novartis to court over false or misleading
representations in the marketing of pain relief products. 
    * OIL: Oil prices dipped on Wednesday, as refined product inventories in the
United States rose in what the market interpreted as a sign of lacklustre
demand.
    * GOLD: Gold prices nudged down early on Wednesday after touching a
two-month low in the previous session, despite a slightly weaker
dollar.

committed to invest in the country under the government's industrial strategy
plans after Brexit.
