[Editorial] Will China make the great leap in tobacco control in 2015?

As the world’s largest producer and consumer of tobacco, China is becoming more aggressive in tobacco control this year. In April, China’s legislature adopted an amendment to the 21-year-old advertisement law to ban tobacco advertisements in mass media, public transport, and public spaces. From May 10, China’s consumption tax on the wholesale price of cigarettes was raised from 5% to 11%—the first increase since 2009. On June 1, Beijing’s smoke-free law—one of the toughest tobacco control regulations in China—will come into effect.
