The Australia China Development Company Chairman, the Hon. Chris Schacht was honoured to attend the Tsingtao Brewery Co. Ltd’s 25th Anniversary celebrations of the Qingdao International Beer Festival as a VIP guest of the world famous brewery. Mr Schacht was visiting Qingdao on one of his twice yearly visits to the Shandong region.

Aside from enjoying a spectacularly prepared afternoon of the best Qingdao cuisine and world class entertainment, he was invited onstage to launch the new “Tsingtao Classic 1903” beer! Mr Schacht first visited Shandong in 1986, perfectly coinciding 30 years of friendship next year with South Australia’s 30th year celebration of state to province relationship.
