About our Wine & Spirits Sector Committee

The Wine & Spirits Sector Committee represents the biggest international companies in the wines and spirits sector in Vietnam. As a group, we work to promote market access, tax policies, marketing, intellectual property, food safety and social policies related to alcohol. Our mission is to promote self-regulation and good citizenship. The committee also assists, discusses, and negotiates with the authorities regarding taxation, importation and distribution, marketing, and so on.


The W&S SC was formed for the following purposes:

  • Improve European & Vietnamese decision-makers’ understanding of the EU wines & spirits industry;
  • Secure appropriate legislative conditions for production, marketing, distribution and sale of EU wines and spirits in Vietnam;
  • Make sure wines & spirits are not treated differently from other local alcoholic beverages;
  • Access Vietnam’s markets freely and fairly;
  • Encourage the industry to implement high marketing standards;
  • Encourage responsible drinking throughout Vietnam;
  • Identify and share good practices with those involved in harm-reduction prevention programs across Vietnam;
  • Develop Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) projects in Vietnam;
  • Maintain compliance with Vietnamese competition laws and regulations.

Members and the company they represent must not limit competition. W&S SC’s members and activities, regardless of market share, are prohibited from:

  • Collaborating with competitors to restrict trade;
  • Cartel conduct;
  • Price fixing;
  • Market sharing: agreeing to allocate customers, suppliers or territories;
  • Restricting output: agreeing to restrict, prevent or limit output in a production or supply chain; 
  • Bid rigging: agreeing which parties will respond to a tender and/or the price they will bid.
