China will report its progress on tobacco control to the member conference of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) next year, but many experts say that there is still a lot to be done.

"China is unlikely to meet the FCTC targets by 2011," Cui Xiaobo, professor of social medicine at the Capital Medicine University, a tobacco control expert, said ahead of this year's World No Tobacco Day on Monday.

Among its protocols the FCTC requires all member countries to implement a comprehensive ban on smoking in public places by January 2011.

China, with a huge economic benefit from the tobacco industry, is facing difficulties to completely implement the baning on smoking.

Currently, among the central government agencies only the Ministry of Health has met the requirements of the Convention, banning indoor smoking at all medical institutions and administrations across the country by the end of 2011.
