Earlier, the Khan Review, an independent review of tobacco control policies commissioned by the UK government, recommended e-cigarettes as the main tool for making England smoke-free by 2030.
“This year’s vaping industry forum will be the largest to date,” UKVIA director-general John Dunne said in a statement. “The conference and exhibition comes at a very exciting time for the vaping industry following the extremely positive Khan Review, which affirmed the key role of e-cigarettes in phasing out traditional cigarettes. And, it also comes on the heels of the much-anticipated new tobacco control program previously published.”
“While vaping presents a huge public health, economic and social opportunity for the country, the industry must face many challenges. Khan Review believes that the vaping industry plays a key role in the harm reduction strategy for cigarettes and we must show that we are A highly responsible industry that can live up to the government’s high expectations.”
