The South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry said the ban on alcohol advertising will harm the economy. 

The draft bill is expected to be tabled in Parliament soon. 

COO of the Chamber of Commerce Peggy Drodskie said the ban will have a ripple effect on businesses including hospitality and retail. 

Drodskie added that they are concerned that the industry itself will be negatively affected by such a ban, the inter-ministerial has indicated and that global research has shown that where there have been bans on alcohol advertising it has not reduce the incident of substance abuse.

“We are very concerned that South Africa in the face of global research is actually going along the root which indicates it’s going to be effective,” Drodskie said.
