Govt. to ban selling of cigarettes separately Empty Govt. to ban selling of cigarettes separately

Very bad news for CTC if implemented. Developed countries have this rule but not an issue for them as cost is not high. CSE will get hit bad if this happens. CTC down 1.2% for the day draging the index as well.

The government will soon ban the selling of cigarettes separately, Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne said yesterday during a meeting held with Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA). Accordingly, if the government imposes the ban, cigarettes will be sold only as packets. He has made this assurance after ten proposals prepared by the GMOA according to the World Health Organization’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC) to eradicate the cigarette menace was handed over to the minister during the meeting. - See more at:

Good move but like everything else here, implementation will be the issue. Very Happy
