Abstract: This study aims to identify which information is potential to drive smokers to quit smoking. By using the choice experiment method, a survey was carried out on 120 adult smokers in two districts (Ninh Kieu and Binh Thuy) of Can Tho City, Vietnam. The findings from this study indicate that all included attributes are significant factors to warning the risks of cigarette smoke. Specifically, health warning graphics (i.e., the image of lung damage and damaged teeth), risk information and smoking ban in public places, and price are effective vehicles. Moreover, under the lens of economics, we found that the inefficiency in controlling smuggled tobacco is a serious problem in Vietnam. In addition to the budget deficit, this could pose a threat to the ability to conduct tobacco control policies for long-term in Vietnam.
