Will the implementation of the Control of Smoking Products for Public Health Bill 2023 and the Generational Endgame (GEG) provisions increase the entry of illegal cigarettes which will result in economic losses to the country?

No, because the implementation of this law and the provisions of the GEG will decrease the prevalence of smokers including electronic cigarettes or vape users which will lead to the lack of demand for all types of smoking products including illegal cigarettes. In addition, enforcement agencies have also strengthened border controls, which will ensure the illicit trade activities is ceased.
