Clarification by AmCham

Updated on Mar 04, 2008 – SCMP

As a matter of clarification, Douglas Woodring’s letter (“Chance to cut tobacco sales squandered”, February 29), represents his own views and does not represent the positions or views of the American Chamber of Commerce, whose environment committee he chairs.

AmCham has taken no formal views of the new Hong Kong budget and issued no statements regarding its contents. Mr Woodring speaks as one of 2,000 members and 25 committee chairmen in AmCham, as is his right to do.
