Seoul Metropolitan Council has proposed an ordinance that would prohibit smoking on streets and in parks and plazas within the capital, except in separate, designated smoking areas, according to a story in The Korea Times.

At the same time, the bill would provide tax incentives to companies participating in non-smoking campaigns.

If passed, the bill, which is due to be discussed during an extraordinary session of the municipal council in June, would take effect from January next year.
