June 20 (Bloomberg) -- Caterpillar Inc., the world’s largest maker of construction and mining equipment, said global retail sales dropped at a slower pace in the three months through May as Latin America improved.

Retail machine sales declined in every region except Latin America, where they rose 22 percent, according to the filing. Sales fell 16 percent in North America; 14 percent in the Asia-Pacific region; 2 percent in Europe, Africa and the Middle East; and 2 percent in the rest of the world.
