Smoking in China at Public Places Finally Curbed – Beijing

Thursday, March 24th, 2011


In a surprise move China has put in place a smoking ban in indoor public places starting 1 May 2011.  Now there is only Russia and a few other major smoking countries left without a ban, as France will have a ban in place very soon. The Chinese Ministry of Health will also bar cigarette vending machines in public places and will not allow smoking areas near to where people might pass. China is the world’s largest cigarette market.
