News update on FCTC Articles 9/10

Please see the news update on the FCA website –

 FCA Tobacco flavours, Facts and Q&A

FCA has just developed a media briefer on tobacco flavours facts and a Q and A, in response to the current misinformation campaign about the FCTC Article 9 and 10 guidelines being waged by tobacco growers. This is also helpful for advocates.

Africa has been the main target of the protests, but tobacco growers are also being mobilized, through the International Tobacco Growers Association (ITGA) in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines.

For further information, and pdf copies of the brief, contact FCA Communications Manager Marty Logan in Ottawa, tel: +1.613.241.3927, ext 302 (office), +1.613.617.1179 (mobile),, or SEATCA c/o
