The Baguio City Economic Zone Authority (BCEZA) has declared a smoking ban in the area, with the slogan “Revolution Smoke-Free.”
The move is an expression of support for Baguio City’s smoke-free program.
Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) Director General Charito Plaza said she wants BCEZA to be a “model smoke-free ecozone.”
“Revolution Smoke-Free is part of the revolution I am implementing in PEZA,” Plaza said.
“As part of its best practices, PEZA will require all other economic zones nationwide to follow the example, as this is a living testimony to how we can show concern for the health and welfare of our employees, their families, and the entire nation,” she added.
