Tobacco generational endgame remains elusive

THE Malaysian Council for Tobacco Control (MCTC) welcomes the Prime Minister’s assurance of the government proceeding with the Control of Tobacco Products and Smoking Bill, especially in terms of the generational endgame (GEG), which aims to prevent future generations of Malaysians from being entrapped in the habit of using tobacco products and smoking.

MCTC also acknowledges the government’s move to impose excise duty on ecigarette and vaping products containing nicotine. As mentioned by the PM, although technically not legal, ecigarette and vaping products are widely available and should therefore be regulated.
