Iran takes 2nd place in the world in volume of tobacco contraband
Severe Islamic country to which Allah himself told not to fume with anything but power station pipes and steamer funnels turned out to be in "interest" position. This has admitted member of Iranian commission of respiratory diseases Abulfaz Arianny. He said: "The first place in cigarettes contraband takes Burma, 2nd - our country".
It is required to specify that contraband cigarettes comes not from Iran but from outside the country to internal market of Great Persia. Annually population of the country smokes approximately 60 billion of cigarettes, 42 % of them are imported to Iran illegally.
In spite of universally taken rules, in the country tax on imported tobacco products was reduced from 40 to 20 % but this also doesn't stop those who have on their "zero excises" not bad, even solid profits.
Trying to solve situation, from March current year, excise tax on cigarettes manufactured in Iran, was reduced to record index 0.5 %. I.e. till on entire Earth smoking products rise in price, in Iran inverse process takes place.
