Francisco N. González Díaz of ProMexico, the Consul General of Mexico in Shanghai Rolando Garcia Alonso and Milton Alatorre of the Tequila Regulatory Council in Asia heralded the arrival of the first 70,000 bottles of 100 percent agave tequila in China. Ten different brands of 100 percent agave tequila have been shipped to China. González noted that thanks to the efforts of the industry, 100 percent agave tequila can be found in more than 100 countries. The delivery ceremony took place at Bund 27, the House of Roosevelt in Shanghai, China. Thanks to a June 2013 agreement signed by Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Chinese President Xi Jinping, China will reduce trade barriers on the sale and import of Mexican tequila. Mexico is expected to export 10 million liters of tequila to China over the next 5 years. ProMexico estimated global Mexican tequila exports last year at over $860 million, or 300 liters per minute.
