Tobacco firms decry Hong Kong plan for bigger warnings on packaging – 30 de Junio de 2015 – Hong Kong

Tobacco companies have asked the Hong Kong government to scrap its plan to enlarge pictorial warnings on cigarette packs from half of the packaging to 85 per cent, citing US research that shows no evidence of oversized warnings reducing smoking.

The study findings came from Dr Kevin Tsui Ka-kin, an associate professor of economics at Clemson University in South Carolina who was commissioned by the Coalition on Tobacco Affairs, an umbrella group of tobacco producers.

"There isn't a correlation between reducing the number of smokers and enlarging the warning signs," Tsui said yesterday.
