From the Paper:

"One of the first countries to experience the Coca-Cola taste was Germany in 1929. Ten years later, operations in Germany have reached sales of over $4.5 million annually. Another country of great importance to European distribution is Spain. It presently operates in more than 10 production facilities and distributes Coca-Cola products in over seven independent distribution sites. In Asia, Coca-Cola's early beginnings were its bottling plant in Shanghai, China in 1927. Plants in Malaysia, Vietnam, and Korea soon followed."
