HA NOI (VNS) — Some 100 alcohol shops in Ha Noi have committed to not selling hard liquor to underage youth from July.

The move is part of the pilot campaign, titled "No alcohol for Under 18s," being carried out by the National Traffic Safety Committee in an effort to enforce the ban on the sale of hard liquor to underage youth, which has been taken lightly so far.

Those who want to purchase liquor might now be asked to present their ID to prove that they can legally consume alcohol.

The campaign is expected to be expanded to 300 stores early next year. — VNS
