Tobacco Industry interference has to be strictly controlled in tobacco taxation process

On February 05 Work for a Better Bangladesh Trust & Bureau of Economic Research, University of Dhaka organized a seminar titled "Consultation Meeting on Tobacco Taxation in Bangladesh" at CARS confereance hall, University of Dhaka.

Tobacco taxation procedure should be kept free from tobacco companies' influence

One of the main reasons for not increasing the price of tobacco products is tobacco industries’ tactics as well as ill- effort to influence on tax policy. Tobacco industry’s such kind of tricky effort is threat for public health and obstacle in achieving SDG goals in Bangladesh. Anti-tobacco activists expressed the above view in a human chain program titled ‘'Prevent tobacco industry's influence in tax policy' jointly organized by Bangladesh Anti-Tobacco Alliance (BATA) and Work for a Better Bangladesh (WBB) Trust on 28 December 2017 in front National Press club.
