Shenzhen to ban smoking in public places

Click to Enlarge

Public opinion is sought in an amendment making Shenzhen the trial city to ban smoking in public places.

Decided by the Central Government early this year, the draft detailed public places where smoking will be prohibited plus corresponding penalties for offenses and legal ground for future enforcement. Under the draft smoking will not be allowed in public places such as hospitals, restaurants, bars, hotels, schools and other indoor areas considered as public places

Businesses are required to place no smoking signs and failing to place signs will merit a fine of 10,000 yuan. Businesses caught allowing customers to smoke will be fined up to 30,000 yuan. Shenzhen already had a smoking ban since 1998 but was never enforced.
