[photopress:logistics_beer.jpg,full,alignright]When Pang Yuliang from Zhengzhou in Henan province made a multimillion euro bid to buy an airport in Schwerin, Germany, he had the interest of millions of fellow beer fanciers in mind.
‘Every beer drinker in China knows Germans make great beer,’ the 40-something entrepreneur reportedly said. In this has has the full, nay enthusiastic support of this writer.
He added, ‘But how many people in China have tasted really fresh German beer?’ The answer is: ‘They will, after I’m done with building up the airport as planned.’
As Pang, founder and chairman of LinkGlobal Logistics, envisaged it, Parchim International Airport will be an important gateway to the growing trade between China and Germany. The flights will carry more than beer.
His grand plan for Parchim included building a 1 million sq m free trade zone for Chinese enterprises angling for greater access to the European market by establishing manufacturing facilities there.
Pang said the project will be carried out in cooperation with Nanjing Hi-tech Development Zone, which houses more than 1,700 enterprises.
LinkGlobal’s spokesman said flying goods directly from Urumqi to Parchim would be shorter and would cost significantly lower than the usual routes with stopovers in Dubai and elsewhere in the Emirates. And the beer will be fresher.
