Cigarette sales increase as health campaigns fail to stub out smoking
New figures suggest smoking is becoming more popular in the Netherlands again, ending a five-year downward trend. A total of 10 billion cigarettes were lit up in 2016, 200m more than in the year before, the AD reports. The finding comes from the annual SUN report drawn up by accountancy firm KPMG for the tobacco industry, which looks into illicit cigarette trade in the European Union. It appears to confirm figures from the CBS indicating that smoking, especially among the young, is on the increase.
