Tobacco Association increases aid for curbing tobacco smuggling

Update: February, 10/2015 - 14:11

HA NOI (VNS) — The Viet Nam Tobacco Association recently announced that they will increase the aid for catching tobacco smugglers from VND1,100 (US$0.05) to VND3,500 (US$0.17) per pack of fake tobacco seized.

These funds will be taken from the association's financial resources, contributed by Vietnamese tobacco companies.

As stated in its latest circular, the association will support several government organisations, including the National Steering Committee on Combating Smuggling, Commercial Fraud and Counterfeit Goods, and local committees on the same matter.

The funds will be divided to support the process of destroying fake tobacco seized and the authorities who directly participate in preventing and controlling the smuggling of tobacco and fake tobacco products.— VNS
