For its 3Q GenMeet, PAGASA took over the whole of Sariwon Korean Barbecue’s 2nd floor at its branch in Promenade Arcade at the Greenhills Shopping Center on 2 August 2017. Host for the evening was the British American Tobacco (Phils.), Ltd.>makers of Lucky Strike, Pall Mall and other famous brands of smokes. They clarified with PAGASA Members the IRR of the recently-passed Smoking Ban (E.O. 26) by the President. Some supermarkets were wary of carrying cigarettes because of confusion brought about by this E.O. and the unclear guidelines that went with it regarding smoking areas and fines and penalties. There were a few new members who joined the group this evening. B.A.T. also informed the group that with the very recent buying of Reynolds American, Inc. by their Mother Company, they are now the biggest cigarette manufacturer in the world. They went on to present the thrust of their company regarding the future of smokes worldwide.
