BANGKOK, 14th July 2018 (NNT) – The government has launched an anti-drinking campaign to mark the arrival of this year’s Buddhist Rains Retreat.
The campaign was unveiled during a press conference on Friday which was co-hosted by the Prime Minister’s Office, the Public Health Ministry, and the network of anti-drinking activists.
The campaign seeks to discourage drinking among alcohol consumers and reduce the number of new drinkers during the holy period of Buddhist Lent, an annual retreat celebrated from July to October.
According to the Ministry of Public Health, the campaign has already been adopted in 155 districts throughout Thailand.
In the meantime, Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha has announced a motto for this year’s anti-drinking campaign which is “Quit Alcohol for a Happier Family.”
