Chapter 3 Intro

In the previous chapter, we learned that when government officials interact with the tobacco industry, it must be only to the extent strictly necessary for effective implementation of the regulations. How should government officials then act if the tobacco industry attempts to engage them? Unnecessary interactions must always be avoided and rejected where possible. To do this, it is important to have safeguards against conflicts of interest and tobacco industry partnerships and integrate these into existing policies.
