The strategy also aims to reduce the rate of passive smoking at work to less than 30%, at restaurants to less than 75%, at bars and cafes to below 80%, and at hotels to below 60%.

It also sets out tasks and solutions for the implementation, including perfecting mechanisms and laws on the prevention and control of tobacco harms, stepping up education and dissemination, and intensifying inspection and handling of violations.

Efforts will be made to build a roadmap to increase taxes on tobacco products to ensure that by 2030 the tax rate will reach the proportion of the retail price as recommended by the World Health Organisation.  

The strategy also proposes promulgate regulations on the prevention of e-cigarette products, heated tobacco, shisha and other new tobacco products in the community./.
