This objective is achieved through a dynamic CGE analysis. The main data come from a social accounting matrix for 2016 calibrated on the Cameroonian economy. As findings, a 50% increase of total alcoholic consumption in 2020 increases the demand of that sector whether the final demand or the intermediate input. The government income may increase in 2020, 2021 and 2024 but may decrease in 2021 and 2022. It may impact positively the GDP in the medium term.
