Abstract

To examine the potential challenges from the tobacco industry to Singapore’s implementation of standardized tobacco packaging in 2020, the study involves a systematic content analysis of documents submitted to the 2018 public consultation process that Singapore’s Ministry of Health conducted on its proposed plain packaging measures. The study contributes to strengthening the evidence base not only on illicit tobacco trade but also on industry interference in Southeast Asia, with a focus on the case of Singapore.

Keywords: Tobacco, Singapore
