Malaysia Government Puts "Generation Smoke-Free" on Hold
Malaysia temporarily shelves the "Generation Smoke-Free" portion of the amended Tobacco Bill to expedite legislation process.

According to a report by KLSE, the Malaysian government has temporarily put aside a part of the revised Tobacco Bill, which aims to achieve a "Smoke-Free Generation (GEG)", in order to expedite the legislative process in the lower house of parliament. The government is also implementing regulations on tobacco and e-cigarette products, with the aim of preventing underage individuals from using these products. Health Minister Zaliha Mustafa stated in a press conference on Tuesday that the priority at the moment is to ensure control over tobacco products, especially e-cigarettes.
