“They don’t have to be excluded, they pay for their trips, their costs and everything, I didn’t know it was going to create controversy,” said the president.

Luis Varela, an executive vice president of Varela Hermanos, told EFE the company has sold rum to China for five or six years and has had a permanent representative in Shanghai since last year.
