Calls for Cambodia to draft anti-tobacco laws

Radio Australia

An alliance of non-government organisations called the Cambodia Movement for Health are urging the parliament to speed up passage of draft anti-tobacco legislation.

The Mekong Times reports the group is also stressing that stronger tobacco laws won't harm the economy.

The movement's director Mom Kong says raising the tax on cigarettes will allow the government to raise more revenue that can be spent on the health and education sectors.

Mon Kong says Cambodia is obliged under the W-H-O's Framework Convention on Tobacco Control to adopt appropriate anti-tobacco policies.

I agree with you about these. Heavy equipment are booming right now. You might be interested to see this site I've found. They offer a lot of heavy equipment: Caterpillar, Hitachi, backhoe loaders, excavators, and many more.
