Experts' Perspectives on New Generation Tobacco Management and Responsibilities
Experts discussed the responsibility of relevant departments in managing new tobacco products at a recent symposium in Vietnam.

On November 2, during a recent symposium hosted by the People's Daily in Vietnam, several experts shared their views on the issues surrounding the management of a new generation of tobacco products and the responsibilities of relevant departments.

 

Senior specialist Wu Gongxiang from the Social Sciences Department of the Government Office pointed out that new tobacco products, including e-cigarettes and heated tobacco, have been present in the market for many years. The World Health Organization (WHO) has confirmed that 185 out of 195 countries have included them in their regulatory frameworks.

 

Wu Gongxiang emphasized the need for departments to study and amend their respective tobacco management regulations regarding the specific division of responsibilities concerning the new tobacco management issues, rather than modifying the Tobacco Hazards Prevention and Control Law.

 

Meanwhile, it is imperative that scientists conduct a comprehensive assessment of these novel tobacco products to ascertain their impact on adolescent users, and to provide scientific evidence regarding the merits of an absolute prohibition on these products.
