China’s powerful tobacco monopoly has mobilised against draft proposals from Beijing aimed at curbing smoking in the world’s largest tobacco consuming nation.

Ling Chengxing, director of the State Tobacco Monopoly Administration, appeared to criticise the recently published measures, which include a ban on indoor smoking, limits on smoking outdoors and on tobacco advertising, as “absolutist” and “expansionist”.

The administration is the government department that controls the China National Tobacco Corporation, which sells 98 per cent of all cigarettes in China. British American Tobacco is the second largest, with just 0.6 per cent of the market, according to figures from Euromonitor.
