Alcohol around the world

So what’s going on with alcohol in the world? Carrie-Anne Clegg gives us a quick insight into the week’s news from around the world.

  • In China, the price of wine has risen by 70% from January 2009 to early 2012. Now that’s a lot!
  • More than 75% of New Zealanders choose to have nights with no alcohol. Trust me, it would be a lot lower in England.
  • In New Zealand a survey revealed that craft beers are gaining popularity.
  • In Georgia, USA, authorities are hoping to attract more tourists by building a fountain that pumps out strong alcohol, in place of water, once a week. Glasses at the ready.

  • In Brazil, alcohol is prohibited inside football stadiums, but FIFA wants legalisation for it to be changed for the 2014 tournament. Do you think it should change?
