Singapore has a new public regulation that greatly affects the cigarette smokers and tobacco companies. This is due to the fact that Singapore wants to reduce the number of smokers in the country and its related health concerns.
According to Health Ministry, business owners were given a one year grace period to comply with their scheduled ultimatum as the Singapore Tobacco Act takes effect.
This is one of the few steps Singapore is applying to decrease the people who are getting addicted to tobacco smoking in their country.
On the other hand, store owners can put a text-only price list of cigarettes available to offer.
Some tobacco companies have objections on the action of the Singaporean government because this will greatly affect their businesses.
