The World Health Organization’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC) has been described as the world’s first public health treaty. It has been developed in response to the global tobacco epidemic and contains a set of wide-ranging measures and recommendations that will ultimately lead to governments having better control of the tobacco market. What is less well known is the significant impact this treaty can have on increasing government revenues.
In an article recently provided by De La Rue, and taken from the G7 Summit 2014 publication, Helen Cochrane (Director, Government Revenue Solutions) explains the importance of the WHO FCTC and the implications this can impose on a Government.
