“We will discuss the best way of allying with Tsingtao and Tingyi this year and consider building

Tsingtao is “purely financial” but he is reviewing the investment because he isn’t satisfied. One option,

he says, would be for Tsingtao to use its distribution network to sell Asahi’s premium beer, Super Dry.
