The bill contained 7 chapters and 38 articles.

This is the first congress to comment on this account.
Prior to this, on 9 November, when commenting on a draft law on the alignment of alcohol and beer, MEPs agreed with the need to declare laws, especially at a time when the actual use of alcohol is a high, rapidly growing and worrying issue. Therefore, the development of this law will contribute to socio-economic development, protect human health, reduce adverse effects of alcohol abuse in life, for example, affecting safety. traffic and social evil.

Therefore, the draft law on the prevention and combating of alcoholic beverages and beers should harmonize the positive effects and the weak aspects of this industry.
Many Members agree with the name of the bill "The Law on the Prevention and Damage of Alcohol and Beer". In addition, there are some ideas that the name of the law should be "the law on the prevention of harmful effects of alcohol abuse" or "the law on the prevention and harmful abuse of alcohol". Another idea is that there should be a policy to increase taxes on alcoholic products, strictly controlling the production and consumption of alcoholic products originating from alcohol.

Nguyen Dao (Lam Dong): "There should be control mechanisms, sanctions"
It is very disturbing to me that today mountain people of the ethnic minority of traditional hand-made alcoholic beverages are quite popular, the lack of government management. Therefore, we have announced the Law on the Prevention and Suppression of Hormones of Alcohol and Beer. It also required a mechanism of control and sanctions for organizations and individuals for the production of beer, alcohol and consumption in violation of regulations. In addition, we must have standards for the production process as well as food safety and the prescribed requirements to ensure the development of production and operations in the manufacturing industry, but we still ensure public health.

According to the research statistics of organizations around the world, if we reduce one dollar to alcohol revenue or spend one dollar to prevent the harmful effects of alcohol, we will be beneficial. , 3 dong from the reduction of fees for treating complications, harmful diseases caused by alcohol. Therefore, the comparison of economic benefits, benefits to health and social benefits should be based on a sustainable development perspective, i.e. Co-ordination of benefits for health and economic benefits in which health benefits should play a fundamental role.
