Sydney, Australia
A telephone card advertisement is seen on a cabinet next to a list displaying prices for the cigarettes inside it at a small shop in central Sydney April 4, 2014. More than a year after Australia became the first country to introduce plain packaging for cigarettes, there is little hard evidence to prove the trailblazing move is worth emulating. Challenges to the stringent laws remain bogged down in the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the tobacco lobby is taking control of a debate characterised by a paucity of data. With the tax rise appearing to pack a bigger punch than the costly introduction of plain packaging a year earlier, the Australian government has been accused of not doing enough to defend its legislation, presenting a potential stumbling block for other countries looking to follow in its footsteps. New Zealand, France, India, South Africa and Britain are all considering adopting standardised packaging on tobacco products. REUTERS/David Gray (AUSTRALIA - Tags: HEALTH SOCIETY)
