Smokers in Egypt will not be able to make a career

April 15 2008

Smoking in the workplace sternly decided to fight in Egypt. Recently, a number of private and state companies of Egypt have decided to strictly forbid smoking in their offices. Such decisions are made in the national program to combat smoking.

So the owner of a private transport company, engaged in shipping, has issued an internal order according to which smoking employees can not now get a promotion, even if their qualifications and experience qualify.

To move up the career ladder company's employees will now have to give up cigarettes for good, reports RIA Novosti.

In the past year in Egypt for smoking in government offices was introduced a fine of 100 Egyptian pounds (about $ 19). However, this punitive measure was not brought results, and in practice is not yet in force.

Egypt is considered one of the smokers around the world. Here annually consume more than 80 billion cigarettes.
