Oman plans to 30% reduction in tobacco consumption by 2025


Cairo: The regional office of the World Health Organization (WHO) for the Eastern Mediterranean, has expressed appreciation for the efforts of the Sultanate of Oman in advocating plain packaging for tobacco products.

The WHO office said Oman ranked second among countries of the region and described Oman’s action as “significant and pioneering.” It added that the step is consistent with the obligations of the states that are party to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control.

Oman is pressing ahead with its plans to meet 30% reduction in tobacco consumption by 2025.

Plain packaging bans the use of logos, colours, brand images, publicity on tobacco packages. It allows for displaying names, brands or product names in a standard style of colour and font. – ONA
