Case Studies

TABINFO Asia 2009 Industry Conference Thwarted by Tobacco Control Advocates

Tobacco executives from around the world gathered at TABINFO Asia 2009 to discuss ways to better promote their deadly product in emerging Asian markets. Due to Thailand’s strictly regulated market, advocates found that components of the exhibition and conference were in violation of Thai law. Additionally, the involvement of Thailand Tobacco Monopoly, the state owned tobacco company under the supervision of the Ministry of Finance, was a clear violation of the Framework Convention for Tobacco Control’s 5.3 guidelines.
