Illicit Trade

Illicit trade in tobacco products is a huge global problem that affects public health, and threatens law and order. Global effort is essential in eliminating this trade, as well as to control supply and distribution chains and implement effective enforcement strategies.

The tobacco industry benefits from illicit trade. Tobacco consumption increases due to the availability of cheaper products, and governments delay raising tobacco taxes because they’re worried about increased smuggling.
