EU and China wine industries set a direct business-to-business dialogue

Beijing / Brussels – 19 November 2013

The professional organisations representing the Chinese and the European Wine companies - CADA ( and CEEV ( - held this week in Beijing a first meeting that inaugurated a direct business-to-business dialogue between Chinese and European wine industries.

This first meeting was an occasion for both associations to know better each other's missions and visions, and exchange views on challenges and opportunities for the wine sector in the global markets.  Jose Ramon FERNANDEZ, Secretary general of CEEV,  thanked CADA's Secretary General, Mr WANG Zuming, for hosting this first constructive meeting that paves the way to permanent and substantial bilateral relationships and dialogue between the Chinese and the European wine sectors. 

Both associations agreed to meet again at the beginning of 2014 with a view to pursue this dialogue.
