Wine biz bet

Despite total wine imports from Portugal to Macau dropping 14 per cent year-on-year in the first half of 2016, Portuguese wine export company Lusovini maintains its bet on the city.The Portuguese trading company, which opened a representative office earlier this year via its local partner Adega Royale Limited, asserts that the Chinese market continues to be extremely attractive.“Macau is definitely an entry gate for the Chinese market for many Portuguese products apart from wines, and by having a permanent office in the territory we can establish a direct connection with Chinese clients,” Export Director for Asia, Pedro Santos, told Business Daily.
