“It is indeed an interesting time for me to be joining the industry. Apart from the challenges of dealing with the covid-19 virus we are also dealing with the rebuilding of the industry and economy after the 9 week prohibition of sales of alcohol. Sadly jobs have already been lost and livelihoods of many negatively impacted however I am optimistic that working together, BASA, government as well as other stakeholders we can grow our beer industry to be the valuable contributor it is. ”
