The market of import beer in Russia: review and databasesThe market of import beer is rapidly growing and changing. But while in the past years it was growing due to brands variety, in 2019 major and affordable brands from TOP-10 were developing actively. It seems that the fact of a brand origin from far abroad counties, even if it is not well known but has moderate price and good distribution provides for million liters of sales in the territory of Russia. Among distributors AB InBev Efes was far behind, yet the role of Baltika and suppliers of the second row got more important. The boom of German brands was followed by stagnation of import from other traditional regions (and Belarus) instead the supplies from Mexico, Lithuania and Asian countries grew considerably.
Philippines. San Miguel to invest in Duterte’s former backyard
Duterte became mayor of Mindanao's Davao City 28 years ago, and transformed the country's former "murder capital" into a more business-friendly hub. He is due to become the first Philippine president from the south following a landslide election victory on May 9. One of Duterte's key campaign platforms was shifting to a more federal form of government to promote broader economic development and tackle an entrenched Muslim insurgency in Mindanao state.
"We plan to build at least three more industrial estates in Mindanao, so that local and foreign investors can locate there," San Miguel President Ramon Ang told reporters on Tuesday.
With no definite timetable for the three projects, Ang said they would be patterned after the company's first industrial park in Davao, which is due to partially open in the second half of this year. It covers 2,000 hectares and has a 600-megawatt, coal-fired power plant, a seaport, and an airport. SMC Davao Industrial Estate is registered with the Philippine Economic Zone Authority, which offers tax breaks and other inducements.
Ang said San Miguel plans to lease land on long-term contracts, and that the 600MW power plant required a $1.2 billion investment. The three new parks will each start off with 300MW generating capacity. Duterte has promised to ease restrictions on foreign ownership of local businesses, and ongoing efforts to attract foreign investment should boost energy demand.
Without going into detail, Ang said Petron, San Miguel's oil refining and retailing unit, plans more gasoline stations for Mindanao. Another subsidiary, San Miguel Pure Foods, is looking to build feed mills there.
San Miguel already has a major brewery in Mindanao, making it a major existing investor. Despite being the second biggest island in the Philippines, Mindanao only contributes 13% of San Miguel's consolidated sales, which stood at 159.6 billion pesos ($3.38 billion) in the first quarter, up 1% year on year.
Ang professed himself unfazed by Duterte's announcement on Monday that he would appoint communists to four key agencies, including the labor and environment departments. "Only foreigners are worried," he said.
Expanding a Davao City ordinance, Duterte also said he would impose a nationwide ban on liquor sales after 1 a.m. nationwide, but Ang does not foresee this hurting beer sales. "San Miguel Brewery is a stable business," he said. "People will just drink faster."
Shares of San Miguel rose 1.1% on Tuesday, outperforming the overall index, which grew 0.2%.
