Are they going to stop the beer ringpull prizes ? Cash in now before it goes.
The Ministry of Information has issued a directive to media outlets, including TV, radio and newspapers, to cease running advertisements for alcohol lucky draws, which it says is contributing to a rise in youth drinking.
The lucky draws, often offered by beer companies, entice consumers by offering them the chance to win motorbikes, televisions, free beer and other prizes when they crack open a can or bottle.
In the letter dated August 21 and delivered to the Khmer Times yesterday, Information Minister Khieu Kanharith said such promotions are leading to a rise in youth drinking, resulting in an increase in traffic accidents, violence, rapes and other bad activities.
“In order to avoid future problems, the ministry is again suggesting all media stop promoting the beer lucky draws,” Mr Kanharith said in the letter.
