 GRTU has received an invitation for its members from Canton Universal Fair Group Ltd., the Organizer of Interwine China 2010.  Interwine China 2010 Guangzhou International Wine and Spirits Exhibition, will be held from Nov 30th –Dec 2nd, 2010 at Guangzhou International Exhibition Center Pazhou Complex.


They wrote to us saying that even though Malta is a small island country it produces good quality wines which are praised by many countries such as France, Italy etc.. They also said that it is a pity that Chinese people are not familiar with Maltese products and they hope to raise the awareness through the participation of Maltese wine makers in this fair.  

Interwine China is the short name of China (Guangzhou) International Wine & Spirits exhibition. It mostly constitutes a prestigious showcase for wine and spirit production, trade, relative products and services from abroad, responding to the need of professionals in the field for a trade-fair with strong international appeal and a strict Business to Business formula.

According to the statistics of 2009, the total consumption volume of China is of more than 250 billion RMB, in which Guangdong province alone takes up 35 billion RMB. In 2005, there were a total of 8,000 wine and spirits importers, agents and distributors. Since the tariff fell from 40% to 14% from January 1st, 2005, spirits agents and merchants` interest in importing foreign wines has drastically increased.

Wines are becoming more and more popular and well-received in China. Due to the geographical advantage of neighboring Hong Kong & Macau and being the business hub between China and East Asia, Guangdong has become the largest circulating centre of imported wines.
