unstar this property answer text <p>The British High Commission in Kuala Lumpur has, in the past, commissioned the Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs (IDEAS) to undertake projects that support the UK’s prosperity, economic and political agenda in Malaysia. These projects were delivered between 2013 and 2017 and were not associated in any way with the promotion of tobacco products. The Government takes very seriously its obligations as a Party to the World Health Organization’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. HMG in Malaysia has not co-financed or partnered in any way with tobacco companies whether through our Prosperity or Global Britain Funds.</p><p> </p><p>Foreign and Commonwealth Office-led programmes follow the standards set out by Her Majesty's Treasury. They receive robust scrutiny to ensure that all spend represents value for money for UK taxpayers and advances the UN’s sustainable development goals and our foreign policy objectives.</p><p>​</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government takes very seriously its obligations as a Party to the World Health Organization's Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC). This includes the treaty commitment at Article 5.3 to protect public health policies with respect to tobacco control from commercial and other vested interests of the tobacco industry. The FCTC does not prohibit meetings with representatives of the tobacco industry but the Foreign and Commonwealth Office issues guidance annually to all staff on limiting support to the tobacco industry to ensure FCTC compliance. We do not hold a central record of staff meetings with third parties. ​</p> more like this
