He disclosed this to newsmen at the launch of its alternative product IQOS in the UK market.

He said, “The company’s IQOS smokeless cigarette is already on sale in over a dozen markets including Japan, Switzerland and Italy.

“IQOS smokeless cigarette heats tobacco enough to produce a vapour without burning it and much less harmful than cigarettes.

“I believe there will come a moment in time where I would say we have sufficient adoption of these alternative products to start envisaging, together with governments, a phase-out period for cigarettes.

“I hope this time will come soon.”
