    Investor-state dispute settlement and tobacco plain packaging

    ACT Law Society Training Room

    Philip Morris Asia Limited (Hong Kong) v The Commonwealth of Australia — a win for a public health measure or just the beginning? In 2011, Australia became the first country to pass laws mandating the plain packaging of tobacco products. This public health measure was quickly challenged by a Hong Kong tobacco company under a bilateral investment treaty between Australia and Hong Kong. Last year the international tribunal issued a unanimous decision which found it had no jurisdiction to hear the claim. The ACT Law Society’s International Law Committee has organised a panel discussion about the case and its broader implications and invites everyone with an interest in international law, investment, trade, and public health to attend.
