Opt for a meeting of minds

A RECENT meeting between officials from the Health Ministry (MOH) and representatives from the tobacco industry has irked the Malaysian Council for Tobacco Control (MCTC) so much that it issued a statement saying such events would hinder the government’s effort to reduce tobacco consumption in the country.

After the said meeting, a post was uploaded on social media with the caption “For future collaboration”. When the issue was highlighted, apparently there were attempts to edit the posting. MCTC described the action as a “clear signal of attempting to hide these meetings.”
