Singapore: Display ban from 2017

The Ministry of Health plans to outlaw displays of tobacco products in retail outlets from 2017, according to Channel NewsAsia.

A standardised, text-only price list for tobacco products may be allowed to promote a level playing field, the website reported. Amendments to the Tobacco (Control of Advertisements and Sale) Act will be tabled in Parliament.

Senior Minister of State for Health Amy Khor reportedly promised the government would work with retailers to reduce inconveniences caused by the switch.
