WHO Framework Convention for Tobacco Control
The WHO FCTC was developed in response to the globalization of the tobacco epidemic. The spread of the tobacco epidemic is facilitated through a variety of complex factors with cross-border effects, including trade liberalization and direct foreign investment. Other factors such as global marketing, transnational tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship, and the international movement of contraband and counterfeit cigarettes have also contributed to the explosive increase in tobacco use.
Tobacco Control Act 2007

It is unclear whether smoking is prohibited in most means of public transport, including trains, buses, taxis, and aircraft.
