Nadi, Fiji, declared “tobacco free”

| May 1, 2014

Nadi, Fiji’s third largest conurbation, on Monday was declared “tobacco free,” according to an Islands Business story.

“Most parts of the town are smoke-free, including the handicraft center, the municipal market, the bus stand, all restaurants, public bars and all night clubs, with more to be added to the list,” Nadi’s special administrator, Robin Ali, was quoted as saying.

This was the beginning of a number of phases aimed at rendering the whole town “smoke-free,” Ali said.

The story indicated that Nadi was expected to become one of the 1,000 global cities that make up the World Health Organization’s Healthy Cities initiative.

And it said that Fiji’s capital, Suva, was already part of the initiative, having recently declared certain areas of its central business district smoke-free.
