“Cigarette smuggling is undermining legal business”, argues the European Commission

Cornelia Primosch is joined by Pia Ahrenkilde Hansen, Spokeswoman of the European Commission (EC), to discuss cigarette smuggling.

On Wednesday, 5th of June, the European Commission adopts a package which aims to strengthen the fight against illicit tobacco trade, focusing on cigarette smuggling.

According to the European Commission, cigarette smuggling is depriving member states of over €10 billion revenue every year concerning unpaid taxes and duties and it is also undermining health policy initiatives.
