The European Commission will adopt an EU-wide strategy to step up its fight against cigarette smuggling

On 6 June the European Commission will adopt an EU-wide strategy to step up its fight against cigarette smuggling. This criminal activity deprives Member States of over €10 billion revenue every year in terms of unpaid taxes and duties. While helping to fund criminal organisations, this problem damages not only national revenues but also threatens legitimate business and undermines health policy initiatives. Given that smuggling is an international problem with criminal networks operating across borders, a coordinated EU approach is the only effective way to tackle the problem.
