The Ministry of Investment, Trade and Industry would like to clarify misinformation regarding the Industrial Development Act and Industrial Development Regulations, 2020 and Trade Act and Trade Regulations, 2020 which appeared in the Government Gazette Extraordinary Vol. LVIII, No. 49 of the 20th May 2020, both of which will commence on the 1st June 2020.
The Acts are subject to the ongoing State of Emergency, therefore, the Emergency Powers Regulations regulating the prohibition of the sale of alcohol still apply. Hence, there shall be no sale of alcohol in all liquor outlets until further notice.
For further clarification kindly contact the MITI Public Relations Office 3601330/318 during working hours or email to MITIPRU@gov.bw or Ministry Facebook page.
