DAR ES SALAAM, Tanzania, May 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — “Moutai is the best product in China and we all will be the marketing ambassadors of Moutai,” said the former Prime Minister Mizengo Pinda of Tanzania on the evening of May 9 of local time, when he attended the large-scale brand culture promotion activity of “Cultural Moutai•Colorful Guizhou” the “Belt and Road Marching into Tanzania” in the Murimani Convention Centre in Dar es Salaam.

At 18:00 on May 9, the activity was officially started in the most important seaport in East Africa; Cultural Moutai and Colorful Guizhou were hand in hand to present the big show with double themes.

Africa is the only mainland where Moutai held twice high-level brand promotion activities in succession in less than two years.

Moutai officially started to expand and develop in Africa in November 2017. At that time, Li Baofang, the secretary of the party committee of Moutai Group, led the team to successfully hold the large-scale brand promotion activity of “Meet Fragrant Cultural Moutai in Africa” in Capetown.

The senior management of Moutai, such as Li Baofang, all showed in different situations that “we need to follow the big picture for the areas along ‘the Belt and Road’ such as Africa, and we must harvest few years later as long as we insist on.”

This travel in East Africa is a crucial brand promotion activity, aiming at the global market held by Moutai this year, after the South Africa promotion activity in April——Colorful Guizhou and Cultural Moutai light the passion under the line with brand-new creativity.

By report, since Moutai Group spent efforts for creation and development, Moutai and the series already covered 11 countries in the African market from zero. 2019 coincides with the 55th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and Tanzania. The appearance of Moutai struck a chord.

Wang Yan, deputy party secretary of Moutai Group showed the commemorative wine of Moutai “marching forward of Tanzania for guests

“Tanzania is the warmest and softest land in Africa. We learned that there is a Tazara Railway when we were still children, and we also saw the snow in Kilimanjaro and the lion running on the East Africa prairie from TV,” Wang Yan, the deputy party secretary of Moutai Group, enthusiastically said. “From distant friends to face-to-face cooperation and common growth, nowadays African mainland is beyond the one-way narrative of Hemingway’s time for Moutai people. Beautiful mountains and rivers of Kilimanjaro and the Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau have never been closer than that in today.”

For Moutai’s second visit to Africa, Wang Yan clearly showed wishes to deepen Moutai people’s efforts here and actively respond to the building of “the Belt and Road,” thus bringing more high-quality Chinese products to Africa.

Wang Yan also introduced that with booming tourism, there are also wine and tea and rich natural heritages in Guizhou, the hometown of Moutai, and also the first big data comprehensive experiment zone in China.

Gao Wei, the cultural counsellor of Chinese embassy in Tanzania, highly praised that Moutai chose Tanzania as the core site of second quality promotion in Africa on the 55th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and Tanzania.

Yang Jianjun, deputy general manager of Moutai, and John Masai Mara, former Vice President and former Prime Minister of Tanzania, jointly revealed the mystery of the commemorative wine of Guizhou Moutai “marching forward Dar es Salaam of Tanzania

In the party, Yang Jianjun, member of the party committee and deputy general manager of Moutai Group, led all participants in a toast and celebrated meeting fragrant Moutai in Africa again. The elaborate Moutai wine tasting video was played synchronously on the big screen to let the guests know more about Chinese wine culture, and singers from Moutai Art Group performed folk songs and dances, integrating natural instincts of singing and dancing between African and Guizhou natives.

Followed by that, a group of African models wearing cheongsams of different colors, holding classical Moutai, including Aged Moutai, Kweichow Moutai, Five-star Moutai, as well as Chinese Zodiac Moutai, stepped toward the main platform, and the rich product design philosophy of Moutai was amazed.

Nathan Tibaigana, a Moutai fen from Tanzania, tasted Moutai on the scene for the first time, and “lovely,” he said in excitement. Comparing the cocktail modulated from Moutai, Nathan Tibaigana preferred drinking Moutai directly, because it is more aromatic and tastes mellower.

Mbura, public relations officer Jackson Isdovy, Chinese director of the UDSM Confucius Institute Prof. Liu Yan and Tanzanian director of the UDSM Confucius Institute Prof. Aldin Mutembei were present at the signing ceremony.

The visit to UDSM was the first action taken by the Cultural Moutai – Colorful Guizhou B&R Journey – Walking into Tanzania delegation, and the MOU represented the first time that Moutai has established a partnership with a major university in Africa.

The starting point for cooperation in several fields

“This is the starting point for our future cooperation encompassing many different fields. We can learn a lot from you, and both of us can achieve good outcomes,” Prof. William Anangisye spoke highly of the MOU with Moutai during his speech.

He said that the signing of the MOU was also the starting point for UDSM to engage in talent development. “Our professors and teachers will visit and learn from Moutai, and we also welcome the students and teachers of Moutai Institute to come here and engage in exchanges with us.”

As the only comprehensive university in Tanzania, UDSM has cultivated many top-notch talents that have gone on to make contributions in Tanzania and throughout East Africa. It is not only the largest and oldest public university in Tanzania, but also has, in recent years, served as a bridge for cultural exchanges between China and Tanzania. The university’s China Research Center has played an active role in promoting Sino-Tanzanian and Sino-African cooperation.

With the signing of the MOU, Moutai Institute has joined East China Normal University and Zhejiang Normal University in the community that has established friendly exchange ties with UDSM.

Moutai Institute, established by Moutai Group, is China’s first undergraduate institution that trains application-oriented professionals for the alcoholic beverage brewing industry chain and serves as the group’s key talent pool. The institute has established seven departments centered around the brewing process, including brewing engineering as well as food science and engineering, providing 14 undergraduate degree programs with a focus on all aspects of brewing engineering, viticulture and wine engineering.

Creating an educational community

Facilitating the open communications between the peoples of the world through cooperation in education is one of the key missions advocated by the Chinese government’s Belt and Road (B&R) initiative. The MOU reflects Moutai Group and UDSM’s ongoing commitment to the memorandum between China and Tanzania for joint participation in the initiative, and their shared vision of building an educational community under the B&R framework by strengthening the collaboration and exchanges between as well as the mutual benefits for educational institutions in the two countries.

According to the MOU, UDSM and Moutai Group will strengthen and expand their exchanges and collaborative efforts with similar groups and organizations in terms of education, culture, talent training and tourism. In addition, the MOU provides Moutai Group with an opportunity to build and deepen its exchanges and collaborative ties with other organizations.

With the partnership, both parties will improve the quality of their academic exchanges by sharing expertise in theory, technology, teaching and practical training with a focus on brewing, among other disciplines, as well as organizing academic discussions and exchange visits. Kweichow Moutai plans provide the two countries with an access to talent exchanges through the Confucius Institute at UDSM.

During his speech, Mr. Wang invited the faculty and outstanding students to visit the Moutai facility in a move to further the exchanges.

He indicated that Moutai, an iconic Chinese liquor maker with products available across the globe, is facilitating the B&R initiative by opening new locations in overseas markets and expanding exports, in addition to increasing investment and imports as well as providing local job opportunities and adding to the tax revenues in several countries around the world.

He said that Moutai has made several contributions to public welfare, providing educational assistance and supporting poverty relief programs in China, as well as assisting in the construction of a primary school in Mozambique and establishing the Moutai Scholarship program in Australia.

UDSM Confucius Institute co-president Liu Yan commented, “Moutai is an iconic Chinese company with a global reputation as well as a long-established symbol of national culture. We believe the partnership between Moutai Group and one of the best universities in Tanzania will prove to be a success and open up new opportunities and possibilities for talent exchanges between the two countries.” UDSM welcomes Moutai Institute to join the list of exchange programs and partnerships between Chinese and Tanzanian institutions.
