SA looking at plain packs by next year

| July 29, 2014

South   Africa aims to force cigarette manufacturers to sell their products in standardized packs by next year, according to a story by Wendell Roelf for Reuters, quoting the country’s Health Minister, Aaron Motsoaledi.

The World Trade Organisation (WTO) is currently looking into complaints about the introduction of standardized packs in Australia, but Motsoaledi said he was “not even sure we can wait for that WTO decision”.

“We can start making preparations now,” he said.

“I want it as soon as possible but realistically and most probably it would be next year.”
