Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung has agreed with no beer stamping policy

Previously, the ministry and other ministries studied the project in 2011 to cope with smuggling, counterfeit and low quality goods in beer and wine trading field.
Of these, Vietnam Beer Alcohol Beverage Association (VBA) proposed to stamp beer products to cope with the issue and hike budget revenue.
Finding the solution might increase procedures and costs for businesses, the ministry has not considered that and studied other solutions instead to ensure legitimate rights of consumers and businesses.
The ministry has recently affirmed no beer stamping policy saying it has been halted for a long time after some media agencies published articles that the ministry continued the policy, which might aggravate cost burden on businesses and increase beer product prices.
On October 23, the ministry sent a document to the Government proposing to stop the project including the beer stamping policy.
