Cigarettes in Moldova

Cigarettes in Moldova

Moldova is a small East European country with a high rate of smoking; 25% of the total adult population are smokers. The country’s state-owned tobacco company, Tutun-CTC, controls the majority of the market. The country has a problem with cigarettes illegally exported into neighboring nations, mainly Romania and Ukraine, which makes calculating the size of the domestic market difficult.

Only 5% of women smoke in Moldova, due to social norms and customs, and they account for 11.3% of the smoking population
