Tobacco consumption poses risks to health, so we agree that tobacco products should be regulated in appropriate ways.
We support, and want to help deliver, a balanced tobacco regulation and we want to participate and support the Government with advice on and compliance with effective future laws.
In Zimbabwe, we support balanced regulation of the tobacco industry and believe strongly that we should participate and support the government with developments, enactments and compliance with future laws.
Truly effective tobacco regulation needs co-operation between the Government and the industry. As a Group we have a market-leading position in over 50 countries and operations in more than 200 countries. We believe we have much experience and expertise to contribute. As manufacturer of the products, we are uniquely involved with and knowledgeable about their design, manufacture, distribution and sale.
Zimbabwe’s tobacco industry is mainly regulated by the Public Health (Control of Tobacco) Regulations, 2002 (Statutory Instrument 264 of 2002).
