Thailand's government is reportedly imposing a ban on alcohol advertisements in all forms of media as part of its anti-drinking campaign.

According to the Bangkok Post, the country's Public Health Minister Mongkol Na Songkhla has said a ministerial law for a round-the-clock advertising ban in the media is imminent.

Drinks companies would be invited to acknowledge the law by next week, reported the newspaper.

It is thought that further legal discussions as to whether the ban could also cover logo-only adverts on television will be necessary. Currently, the country allows alcohol commercials on television after 10pm.

The government's new law would not cover advertising during live broadcasts such as sporting events though, the report added.
