  烟草在线据《马尼拉公报》报道编译  对每盒卷烟提税30比索的提案得到了健康与民间团体的支持,因为这项举措被认为将遏制菲律宾国内的癌症和高血压等与烟草相关疾病的发生。

  接受电话采访的《烟草控制框架公约》菲律宾联盟(FCAP)和其他烟草控制组织认为,没有合法的理由阻止这项措施通过。

  《烟草控制框架公约》菲律宾联盟的执行理事Maricar Limpin说:“我们认为,没有合法理由使得这项措施不能获得通过……只有烟草业与钱有关的利益方会妨碍这项措施的通过。”

  Limpin补充说:“我们预计,他们将会利用国会议员中的同盟者,重新提起这项法案对烟农生计的威胁。”他敦促国会筹款委员会提供替代性的农作物生计项目。

  Limpin发布了支持菲律宾怡朗市(Iloilo)国会议员Neil Tupas提出的措施的声明。Tupas提议,从2012年至2014年,对低价卷烟品牌征收每盒14比索的烟税,对高价品牌征收每盒28.3比索的烟税。

  Tupas还认为,指定从烟草和酒精收取的总消费税收入的2.5%用于专门用途,将有助于扩大全民医疗保健的资金。

  他补充说,烟草产品消费税收入的另2.5%将促进政府的健康改善计划,遏制菲律宾国内与烟草有关疾病的发生。

  菲律宾前卫生部长Galvez Tan表示赞成,目前最便宜的卷烟品牌每支12菲律宾分的卷烟税率需要得到提高,因为这个烟税对卷烟价格几乎没有什么影响。

  Tan说:“如果你真的希望人们戒烟,烟税制度必须立刻改进。”


P30 tax hike per pack of cigarette backed

Manila Bulletin
December 13, 2010

  MANILA, Philippines – Proposals imposing a P30 tax increase per pack of cigarette drew support from health and civil society group as the move was seen to curb incidence of tobacco-related diseases like cancer and hypertension in the country.

  Framework Convention on Tobacco Control Alliance Philippines (FCAP) and other tobacco control groups called saw no legitimate reason that will prevent the passage of the measure.

  "We see no legitimate reason why this measure will not pass through this legislation... only the moneyed interests of the tobacco industry will get in the way," FCAO Executive Director Maricar Limpin said.

  "We expect them to use their allies among legislators to raise again the threat of the bill to the livelihood of tobacco farmers," Limpin added, urging the House Committee on Ways and Means to provide alternative farm crops livelihood programs.

  Limpin issued the statement in support of the measure of Iloilo Rep. Neil Tupas Jr., who proposed to impose P14 per pack for low-priced cigarette brands and P28.30 for high-brand products from 2012 to 2014.

  Tupas also expressed belief that earmarking 2.5 percent of total excise tax collection from tobacco and alcohol will help expand the finances for the universal health coverage.

  Tupas added that another 2.5 percent of the excise tax on tobacco products will promote the government's health promotion programs, curbing incidence of tobacco-related incidence in the country.

  Former health secretary Galvez Tan agreed that current cigarette tax rate of 12 centavo per stick for the cheapest brand need to be increased as it barely makes a dent in cigarette prices.

  "If you really want people to stop smoking, the tobacco tax system needs to be improved immediately," Tan said.
