Vietnamese Taxes on carbonated drink?


Many countries around the world, including Thailand, have decided to put in place taxes on carbonated drinks. Vietnam is currently looking at this issue. Obesity was not a problem until very recently in Vietnam but with the recent economic boom, obesity has raised considerably. The risks linked to obesity are well known and include an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and stroke. The tax proposal would create additional revenues for the Vietnamese government in excess of $200 million but naturally many businesses try to fight it. As an investor, it is important before the legislation goes ahead to understand what exact products will be concerned and consequently what firms will be impacted.
