How much would a pack of smokes cost if Government will pass the new vice law

BUCHAREST | The Government intends, by its new health law, to double the tax on tobacco addiction, from 10 to 20 Euros/1000 cigarettes, as that will lead to higher prices by about 2RON per package of cigarettes, an increase of 15 -20% of the price, according to industry representatives.

To combat the excessive consumption of tobacco products and alcoholic beverages, but also for financing of health costs, “some contributions” will be establish to be revenues of the Ministry of Health, says the project. Thus, companies that manufacture or import tobacco products will contribute, for both cigarettes and cigars with $ 20 Euros for 1000 pieces.
