Note Verbale: ITIC serves the interest of the tobacco industry

Note Verbale: ITIC serves the interest of the tobacco industry

In March 2016, the FCTC Convention Secretariat issued a second Note Verbale(Diplomatic Communications) against the ITIC. The Note Verbale outlines how the ITIC has intensified efforts to promote policies favouring the tobacco industry rather than the FCTC. The Note Verbale refers to the ITIC as a group that “serves the interest of the tobacco industry”. The ITIC organises meetings that serve as a “means for the tobacco industry to interfere with national policies on tobacco taxation and controls on the illicit trade in tobacco products.” (view full note)
