اليابان تحث الشباب على شرب المزيد من الخمور

By Phil Bainbridge

August 18, 2022 - أطلقت وكالة الضرائب الوطنية اليابانية مسابقة على الصعيد الوطني - ساكي فيفا!” - تدعو فيها لإعطاء أفكار لتنشيط صناعة المشروبات التي شهدت تراجعاً حاداً في عائدات الضرائب من الكحول إلى مستوى منخفض جديد.

Alcohol sales have been declining since their peak in 1995 and suffered a sharp fall at restaurants and bars during the pandemic, which brought tax revenues from the sale of alcohol down from around 5% of total revenue in 1980 to 1.7% in 2020.

However the campaign to help “revitalise” the nation’s liquor industry has drawn criticism from health campaigners and was not co-ordinated with the health ministry although the two say they are in close regular contact over alcohol and health issues.
