Will The Shelter be smoke-free by 2011?
The biggest question on our minds right now: Does this mean we’ll finally have smoke-free restaurants, bars and clubs?:
China is set to implement a ban on smoking in all indoor public places including workplaces and public transport vehicles from January 2011.
Yang Qing, Director General of the Department of Maternal and Child Health and Community Health at China’s Ministry of Health (MOH) says that the ban is being carried out according to the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control.
The MOH will ban smoking in its offices this month.
One year ago, the ministry said that all its offices and medical facilities would be smoke-free by 2011.
