Zhoghovurd: Armenia increases tobacco exports to East

A recently observed growth in the tobacco industries in Armenia is also known to have boosted the exports, especially to the EEU member states but also several eastern countries.

STEPANAKERT, NOVEMBER 11, ARTSAKHPRESS: Iraq is reported to be the major purchaser. Also, the exports to Syria and the United Arab Emirates have increased, says the paper, adding that Armenia is now exporting cigarettes also to Japan which, as the official records suggest, purchased $219,300 worth tobacco products from the country in the first two quarters of this year.

As for the EEU countries, only the Russian market reportedly accepts the Armenian product now, as neither Belarus nor Kazakhstan and nor even Kyrgyzstan imported a single tobacco pipe from Armenia over the past period of 2017 or in 2016.

What’s even more, the exports to Russia have decreased to $1,75,600 million against the $2,10,700 million in the same period of last year, according to the paper.
