Exclude Philip Morris from Meetings with Thai Officials!
OVERVIEW: The U.S.-ASEAN Business Council, of which Philip Morris International is a member, is planning a visit to Thailand in June. It has asked, through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, to meet Thailand's Prime Minister and several ministers, including the public health minister. Thai tobacco control advocates are concerned about PMI's involvement in such meetings, which would be in violation of Article 5.3 of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control.
Your letter will also be cc'd to appropriate Thai government officials and U.S.-ASEAN Business Council employees.
