0 China: Tsingtao predicts 20% growth

Tsingtao Brewery Co, part-owned by Anheuser-Busch Cos, said its sales will grow by at least 20 percent annually in the next five years as it increases spending to build new plants, Bloomberg reported August 13.

The biggest Chinese brewer will focus on the construction of additional production lines in the next three to five years to sustain its revenue growth, chairman Li Guirong said in an interview yesterday in the Chinese port city of Qingdao.

Rising affluence in the world's biggest beer market spurred a 16 percent surge in sales last year, with consumption forecast by Anheuser-Busch to double within a decade. Tsingtao Brewery, responsible for more than half of China's beer exports, is increasing marketing of premium products, including a low-alcohol brand, through sponsoring next year's Beijing Olympic Games.

The company will add additional production capacity of more than 1 million tonnes by the start of next year by building new plants in Shandong, Sichuan and Shaanxi, Li said.

"We will depend primarily on the domestic market for our development due to the strong local demands," Li said.

0 Vietnam: Brewery sector in the context of WTO membership were discussed

Measures to promote development of the brewery sector in Vietnam in the context of WTO membership were discussed at a seminar organised in Hanoi, Nhan Dan reported August 11.

Co-operating as strategic alliances and strong groups is one of the proposed measures. Others suggested include the building and implementing of a long-term business strategy as well as a strategy to develop their brands in a sustainable manner, increasing their competitiveness and learning experiences from other countries.

According to experts, Vietnam’s brewery sector is developing rapidly. High quality, strong beer brands are replacing low quality ones. In the early period of WTO integration, many leading beer brands have co-operated and set up big strategic alliances. Mergers and acquisition activities in the sector have also been quite common.

Vietnam is currently ranked seventh in Asia in beer production and second in ASEAN, after Thailand.

There are 300 brewery factories in 50 out of Vietnam’s 64 cities and provinces. This year, the sector targets a total production of 1.625 billion litres of beer.
