Liang Jinhui, deputy to the National People’s Congress:Suggest a joint application for the legacy under the name of”Old Chinese Liquor Workshop”
The representative of the National People’s Congress and Chairman of Gujing Group Liang Jinhui suggested strengthening the protection of Chinese liquor cultural heritage and intellectual property rights, and jointly declare the world cultural heritage under the name of”Chinese liquor old workshop”. Since modern times, the brewing technology of liquor has always belonged to China’s unique intellectual property rights, and it is an important symbol that can shoulder the expression of Chinese national culture. Today, there are only 17 non-genetic inheritors of Chinese liquor-making skills, and most of them are over or close to retirement age. The inheritance of Chinese liquor-making skills is worrying and precarious.
National People’s Congress representative Liang Jinhui believes that promoting the cultural heritage of the wine industry and protecting the intellectual property rights of the wine industry is a contribution made by the wine industry to the prosperity of socialist culture. It is of great significance to the establishment of national cultural self-confidence and cultural consciousness.
In view of the current situation and existing problems of the wine industry, Chairman Liang Jinhui put forward three suggestions:
One is to promote the application of Chinese liquor cultural heritage to the World Cultural Heritage List. There are more than 6,000 wine-making enterprises in my country and more than 1,000 wine-making enterprises above designated size, including many old wine-making workshops and cultural relics. However, there are only 7″Old Chinese Liquor Workshops” recognized by Chinese cultural heritage. It is recommended to strengthen the archaeological research and identification of the wine-making cultural heritage, and at the same time promote the application of the Chinese liquor cultural heritage to the world cultural heritage list, and it is recommended to jointly apply for the world cultural heritage under the name of the”Chinese Liquor Old Workshop”.
Secondly, develop a targeted protection system for industrial heritage. Currently, my country does not have a complete set of laws and regulations governing the protection of cultural heritage. The protection of cultural heritage is scattered in various laws, regulations and notices at different levels, and there is a situation of multiple management, so that the responsibilities are not clear or lead to management. On the lack of. In particular, the”living heritage” in use in the cultural heritage of liquor, many of the wine pits and workshops in the Ming and Qing dynasties and even older, are cultural relics that have continued and continued to produce wine for hundreds of years, and are different from the traditional protection of cultural relics. There are significant differences. Therefore, it is very necessary to refine on the basis of the existing heritage protection system, increase the targeted content of industrial heritage protection, and finally establish an independent industrial cultural heritage protection system. According to the value and characteristics of industrial heritage, formulate various aspects of industrial heritage protection. Policies, regulations and measures to better realize the protection and utilization of cultural heritage.
Third, severe penalties for violations of intellectual property rights. Intellectual property rights are an important means of protecting trademarks, geographical indications, and cultural heritage. However, the current penalties for illegal and criminal violations of alcoholic intellectual property rights are very slight, which basically fail to achieve the deterrent effect on infringements and violations, which greatly harms the development of the industry and the interests of consumers. It is recommended that for violations of intellectual property rights, counterfeiting and inferior crimes, the top-level design of the law should be improved, punishments should be increased, the cost of violations of intellectual property rights infringements should be increased, and the fundamental governance of intellectual property crimes should be realized in accordance with the law. From the perspective of corporate rights protection, it is necessary to build a protection linkage mechanism for judicial, administrative, and industry collaboration, and make full use of existing administrative, supervisory, legal, and public opinion methods to mobilize the entire society to jointly combat counterfeiting and trafficking activities, and create Good market order.
National People’s Congress representative Qiu Guanghe:Legislation prohibits minors from drinking alcohol and cracks down on alcohol sales to minors
Qiu Guanghe, a representative of the National People’s Congress and chairman of Semir Group Co., Ltd., suggested that “minors under the age of 18 are illegal to drink alcohol” and severely crack down on selling alcohol to minors. He said that underage drinking and alcohol abuse are social issues that are of great concern in any country. For example, Japanese law stipulates that people under the age of 20 are not allowed to drink, the United States has raised the minimum age for drinking to 21, and business operators are under 21. Of customers who sell alcohol can be jailed for up to one year.
”Currently, there are no provisions in domestic laws that specifically prohibit the drinking of minors under the age of 18. There are provisions in the Law on the Protection of Minors and the Measures for the Administration of Alcohol Circulation as to the prohibition of selling alcohol to minors, but It’s rather vague.” Qiu Guanghe said, if Article 67 of the Law on the Protection of Minors stipulates that “sales of tobacco and alcohol to minors, or no signs of non-sale of tobacco and alcohol to minors are set up in a prominent position, the competent authority shall Order corrections and impose administrative penalties in accordance with the law.” However, there are no specific details on the amount of penalties. In reality, it is rare to see or hear instances of businesses being punished for selling alcohol to minors.
He suggested the introduction of a special alcohol prohibition law for minors, which clearly stipulates that drinking under the age of 18 is illegal, and no one shall provide minors with alcoholic beverages with an alcohol concentration greater than 5%. Increase the penalties for peddling alcoholic beverages to minors, and the measures should be more specific,”If the circumstances are serious, they may be sentenced to administrative detention, control, criminal detention or fixed-term imprisonment of less than one year.”
National People’s Congress representative Zan Shengda:It is recommended to pay attention to and solve the problem of misuse of chemical additives in liquor blending.
National People’s Congress representative and chairman of Jiangsu Variety Arts Group Zan Shengda suggested to pay attention to and solve the problem of misuse of chemical additives in liquor blending. He said that although the use of chemical additives is allowed in liquor blending in my country, some liquor companies abuse additives from time to time in order to pursue the so-called better taste and obtain greater profits.
Zen Shengda’s chairman suggested that one is to establish a supervision system for the inflow of chemical additives to liquor production enterprises. Regarding the use of manufacturers to register the origin and use of additives, the additive manufacturer implements the production and sales registration and filing system, and guards the threshold of over-range and over-use, which is convenient for tracing and supervision. The second is to use international standards to label chemical additives. With reference to the general requirements of the relevant EU laws on food labeling, food labeling must not cause consumers to misunderstand the attributes of the product, and stipulates that the labeling must list all ingredients in the order of ingredient weight. In accordance with the requirements of my country’s”General Rules for the Labeling of Prepackaged Foods”, enterprises should truthfully indicate the various ingredients used in the label ingredient list. At present, there are not many liquor brands on the market that use edible alcohol and additives. Since liquor blending is a legal process in the liquor manufacturing process, the ingredients should be clearly marked. For example, the secret formula can be filed and publicized in the relevant functional departments, and the consumer’s right to know is returned. The third is to improve the safety standard system for liquor as soon as possible. Competent departments and industry associations should also formulate rules and strengthen supervision to realize information interconnection among regions and departments, and regularly release liquor safety information to the public. At the same time, it is recommended to upgrade liquor testing standards and methods, improve additive identification technology, and adopt economic, administrative, and legal measures to combat the abuse of chemical additives.
