Cigarette Sales Declining Dramatically In Hungary
Statistics released recently by NAV, the Hungarian Tax and Financial Control Administration, show that sales of cigarette are significantly falling, Népszabadság reported last Friday. According to the NAV figures published by this national newspaper, 623 million cigarettes were sold in July, around 40% fewer than in June 2013 when new regulations on tobacco retail came into effect.

The decline compared to last year is huge, as 1.3 bn cigarattes were sold in July 2012. Népszabadság also noted that according to NAV data, tobacco producers' sales fell by about 30% year on year by mid-summer.
