Indonesia’s decision to increase its excise tax on tobacco products is a welcomed move, according to a public health group.

But the Tobacco Control Support Center and the Association of Indonesian Public Health Experts (TCSC-IAKMI) said there was still room for more measures to discourage smoking in the country.

The statement came on Friday, a day after Sri Mulyani, Indonesia’s finance minister, announced a 12.5% increase in tobacco excise tax, which will be effective starting February 2021.
