GENEVA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/13 -- Following yesterday's reports that Cuba planned to challenge Australia's tobacco laws at the World Trade Organization, the government of the Dominican Republic issued the following statement:
"With Cuba's decision to request WTO consultations, we are hearing the chorus of voices opposing Australia's plain packaging law continuing to grow.
"We welcome Cuba's decision to join the list of developing countries that are fighting for the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of tobacco workers. Destroying the fabric of trademarks, high-quality brands, and geographical indications, the reputations of which took decades to develop, is not an effective way to reduce smoking. In taking this unprecedented step, Cuba is recognizing that Australia's unfounded law will only drive consumers away from its high-end products and destroy a major part of the country's cultural heritage."
