Summary
In its efforts to control tobacco use, Thailand has used taxation as a price measure and increased excise tax rates significantly over time. This report suggests that a mechanism to raise the price of cigarettes at a rate higher than the inflation along with appropriate taxation on other tobacco products will make the taxation system more effective for tobacco control.
