Beijing launched a radical effort this June to reduce the sheen of smoke hovering in restaurants, offices and other indoor areas. Officials boosted fines and vowed to shame scofflaws on a government website. Three months later, has the crackdown helped reorient cultural habits or resulted in little more than smoke and mirrors for the world’s largest tobacco consumer? WHO China representative Bernhard Schwartländer and Gao Xiaojun, vice commissioner of the BJ Health and Family Planning Commission, will assess the law’s initial success, reveal compliance and enforcement figures, and outline the challenges that remain.
