Plain packs coming in 2020

15 Feb 2017. Parliament unanimously approved a law to ban advertising for tobacco products and require uniform packaging from 2020, Reuters reported.

Slovenia joins countries like Australia and the UK in requiring a standard colour and branding on tobacco packaging. Roughly one-in-four Slovenians aged 15 to 64 smoke. Health Minister Milojka Kolar Celarc reportedly said the country wants to reduce the smoking rate to below 5 per cent of the adult Population.
