Panama to host the upcoming Tenth session of the Conference of the Parties (COP10) to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control and the Third session of the Meeting of the Parties (MOP3) to the Protocol to Eliminate Illicit Trade in Tobacco Products

The Secretariat of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC) signed the agreement with the government of Panama to host the forthcoming sessions of the Conference of the Parties to the WHO FCTC and the Meeting of the Parties to the Protocol to Eliminate Illicit Trade in Tobacco Products (Protocol). The sessions will take place in Panama City at the Panama Convention Center.

Parties to the WHO FCTC and to the Protocol will gather to make decisions to further protect people around the world from the devastating health, social, economic and environmental consequences of tobacco consumption and exposure to tobacco smoke, as well as to eliminate all forms of illicit trade in tobacco products.

The Conference of the Parties, as the Governing Body of the WHO FCTC, will review progress in the implementation of the WHO FCTC and take the next crucial steps to reaffirm the right of all people to the highest standard of health.

The Meeting of the Parties, the Governing Body of the Protocol, will address issues related to international trade in illicit tobacco and promote greater collaboration with government agencies, regional and international bodies, including those related to law enforcement and customs agencies, which are key partners in effectively implementing the Protocol.
