Chinese business owners are due to hold a demonstration in Madrid on Monday.

The aim of the demonstration is to protest against difficulties they have experienced to obtain licenses that would allow them to sell alcoholic beverages in their stores.

According to the Chinese Merchants Association of the Community of Madrid other supermarkets or shops do get the license to sell alcohol. The Chinese applications however are always denied.

The Chinese business owners estimate a loss of revenues between 40 and 60%.
