The Vietnamese government has approved a new national program to restrict the use of e-cigarettes, shisha and other new tobacco products.
According to media reports, it is part of a comprehensive program proposed by the Ministry of Health to prevent the harmful impacts of cigarettes.
It aims to reduce the percentage of smoking males above 15 years of age to below 39 percent and that of women to below 1.4 percent.
It also hopes to prevent passive smoking at workplaces, restaurants, hotels, coffee shops, and other public places.
Research will be conducted into the negative impacts of tobacco, especially new products, the reports suggest.
The government is also working on increasing taxes on vaping and other tobacco products and determining minimum prices for them.
