We also interview Zhu Pengcheng, President of Yantai Changyu Glass, the largest wine bottle producer in China. He discusses what makes Changyu stand out from its competitors, and the challenges and opportunities facing the Chinese container glass industry at the moment.

We report on the recent ICG Shanghai Congress and the Glass Focus conference hosted by British Glass, both of which were attended by Glass International.
