The adoption of the Beijing smoke-free law in 2014 was a genuine breakthrough for tobacco control in China. The law sets a new benchmark for smoke-free law elsewhere, and has generated a real sense of momentum for the adoption of a national smoke-free law. This report shows that once adopted and fully implemented, a national smoke-free law will improve health, and benefit businesses and the economy.
