Tobacco Industry Interference in Tobacco Tax Policies in ASEAN Countries PDF 2.9mb

With an annual global death count of 8 million people (including 1.2 million non-smokers), the dangerous effects of tobacco consumption and exposure are well-known and well-documented. Big tobacco is a deeply profitable industry that makes billions of dollars from consumers, particularly those in low-and-middle-income countries and undermines effective tobacco control policies to protect its profits. This publication exposes and investigates tobacco industry interference in tobacco tax policies at global and regional levels, with survey findings from Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam confirming that tobacco industry interference is a current and significant threat to the development and implementation of effective tobacco tax policies across the region.
