The government of the Philippines has made strides towards limiting tobacco industry involvement in decision-making. The Tobacco Regulation Act 2003 (RA9211) has given the tobacco industry representatives a seat in the Inter-Agency Committee-Tobacco (IAC-T), the committee tasked with the implementation of tobacco control law. In 2018, the Committee on Health in the House of Representatives discussed seven bills to amend the Act. One of the key amendments was to restructure the IAC-T, including removal of the Philippine Tobacco Institute (PTI) from the Committee and assigning the Department of Health as chair of the Committee. The PTI, a tobacco industry front group in the Philippines, [[Philip Morris Fortune Tobacco Corporation]], and Japan Tobacco International  attended the hearings as resource persons and provided their comments on the proposed measures. The bills are still under consideration. {{r|GTII_2019|p=10}}
