This isn’t the Chinese government’s first declaration of war on official corruptionand wanton spending—and Western companies know it. Some of the world’s biggest liquor producers and carmakers are shrugging off dramatic falls in sales of luxury cars, watches and alcohol resulting from Xi Jinping’s recent crackdown on assorted luxuries.

China’s Communist Party has banned banquets, restricted the registration of military license plates on premium cars and banned television and radio advertisement for expensive watches, stamps, and gold coins. As a result, Chinese sales of luxury watches have suffered.

Revenues at upscale restaurants in Shanghai, Beijing and Ningbo fell between 20% and 35% in January, state media Xinhua reported. Sales of Bentleys in China dropped 20% (paywall) for the first quarter, while sales growth for BMW and Volkswagen’s Audi slowed dramatically (paywall). Sales of baijiu, a premium Chinese grain liquor, by Diageo, the world’s largest distiller, fell 40% in the first three months of this year, according to a company call on May 14.
