BANGKOK – Bangkok’s Deputy Governor Pussadee Tamta stated Wednesday that The Metropolitan Administration in Bangkok City has warned smokers not to smoke in markets or to face a maximum fine of Bt2,000.
She was speaking at an opening ceremony of a campaign for the markets to be free of smoking.
Thailand’s Health Office had distributed pamphlets, stickers and banners to the markets through district offices in Bangkok. However a survey earlier this year showed that only 20.32 per cent of respondents saw them. Meanwhile 73.36 per cent witnessed smoking in the markets.
