Well, not exactly the nation but a big chunk of the the nationalised brewing infrastructure by name of the Fujian Sedrin Brewery. This is interesting as our reports from the ground in China indicate the beer is poor but the increasing demand - at least from certain expats - is enough to justify a boost in product by players like InBev. Interestingly, the New York Times reports:
Marianne Amssoms, a spokeswoman for InBev declined to comment on the negotiations for Fujian Sedrin. Officials at Fujian Sedrin could not be reached for comment, the newspaper said.Fascinating reportage.
