PMI’s new boss cancels appearance at Future of Asia conference


The new CEO of Philip Morris International has withdrawn from a prestigious international conference.

Jacek Olczak was due to address the Future of Asia conference which PMI had also co-sponsored.

The withdrawal of the CEO and sponsorship follows concern raised by public health officials across the globe at the tobacco company’s attempt to insert itself into this meeting of high level government representatives.

STOP has issued a statement welcoming the decision and the conference’s compliance with the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control.
