  3. 3. Control of Advertising of Cigarete Products • Hong Kong data – 1982 initial limits on tobacco use – In 1990 tobacco advertising on broadcast media was prohibited – and later billboard bans were instituted – Most recently, the Smoking (Public Health) Ordinance (Cap. 371) regulations included bans of print media advertisements in 1997, effective December 1999 – The current restrictions exempt point of sale advertising. – None the less, tobacco companies continue to promote brand awareness principally via sports sponsorship and branded clothing and music. Source: Fielding, R., Chee, Y.Y., Choi, K.M., Chu, T.K., Kato, K., Lam, S.K., Sin, K.L., Tang, K.T., Wong, H.M. & Wong, K.M. (2004). Declines in tobacco brand recognition and ever-smoking rates among young children following restrictions on tobacco advertisements in Hong Kong. Journal of Public Health. 26(1), 24-30.
  4. 4. Concllusion • Let me conclude by summarising the main points of my presentation. • Cancer causes a quarter of all deaths in Hong Kong, and lung cancer, which is chiefly caused by smoking, causes one third of all deaths. • To counter this,To counter this, 33 measures have been proposed.measures have been proposed. • Of these, further restrictions on the promotion of tobacco brands, and greater limits on where people can smoke are recommended. • Regarding the third measure, increased taxation of cigarettes, I BELIEVE THE PRESENT LEVELS SHOULD BE MAINTAINED, BUT NOT INCREASED!!!!!!!!
