The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - INSIDER -

SYD­NEY TOWN HALL, CITY

DIG­NI­TARIES flew in from China to toast 46 years of of­fi­cial re­la­tions with Aus­tralia, at an event hosted by liquor brand Kweichow Moutai on a chilly Wed­nes­day night.

Some 500 guests packed Syd­ney Town Hall for en­ter­tain­ment that in­cluded an in­dige­nous Aus­tralian dance, as well as a Chi­nese opera singer.

Kweichow Moutai vice-pres­i­dent Zhang De­qin was among those who flew in from Guizhou for the event, min­gling with VIPs who in­cluded news read­ers Lee Lin Chin and San­dra Sully.

Aus­tralian guests en­joyed soaking up the touch of Chi­nese cul­ture, em­brac­ing the lan­guage by learn­ing the tra­di­tional toast of “gan­bei”.

The night also marked the launch of a lim­ited col­lec­tor’s edi­tion Aus­tralian Moutai bot­tle. All guests went home with two bot­tles of the drop. JONATHON MO­RAN
