Good Luck.
tough new smoking ban has been introduced in China's capital city Beijing. It coincides with World No Tobacco Day and was welcomed by World Health Organization (WHO). ban came into effect on June 1st and is toughest anti-smoking law to be implemented anywhere in China. It prohibits smoking in all indoor public places, on public transport and in workplaces. Unlike other bans in China, this one is backed up by hefty fines for anyone lighting up indoors in public. Restaurants will have big part to play in implementing ban. Restaurant owners will face heavy fine if they do not stop people smoking. public is also being encouraged to report anyone breaking law.

WHO rewarded Beijing with special prize. WHO spokesperson said: "We applauded Beijing for its strong and determined leadership in protecting health of its people by making public places smoke-free. We are delighted to be formally recognising Beijing Municipal Government with WHO World No Tobacco Day Award." China still has long way to go to get its population to stop smoking. The country is world's largest tobacco producer and consumer. There are around 300 million smokers in China, which is almost same size as population of the USA. More than one million Chinese die each year from smoking-related diseases.
