Tagus region’s wine producers travel to China to boost cooperation

6 November 2012

Portugal’s Tagus Winemaking Regional Commision (Comissão Vitivinícola Regional – CVR – do Tejo) plans to take 14 producers from the region to China to take part in two fairs and boost commercial ties with the country, the commission said.

The CVR said that this was the, “biggest every approach to China,” and that it was “already the second largest market for the region in terms of exports outside the European Union.”

Between January and September of this year sales to China rose 54 percent against the same period of 2011, the statement said.

The mission from the Tagus CVR to China will run from 8 to 19 November, in Hong Kong, at the International Wine & Spirits Fair, followed by the Interwine Fair, in Guangzhou, from 14 to 16 November. (macauhub)
