MANILA, Philippines — The vape bill will give the Philippines an opportunity to replicate the liberal approach of the United Kingdom in addressing the smoking epidemic by providing smokers with less harmful alternatives, according to the British Chamber of Commerce Philippines (BCCP).

In a letter, the BCCP urged President Rodrigo Duterte to sign the vape bill into law, following its approval by the two chambers of Congress. “The liberal approach to vaping of the UK government has led to a significant reduction in smoking rates,” Chris Nelson, BCCP executive director and trustee, said in the letter.
