A special working group has formed to re-write an earlier draft law on advertising of last April. "The new law will oblige manufacturers to state risks involved in the use or consumption of their products. This risk must be stated clearly in large-sized print on product packaging" said Parnoja.
The proposal allows the advertising of alcohol on TV and newspapers. However, the marketing of tobacco products is restricted to newspapers, magazines, billboards and sponsorship.
