Cigarette production in Iran is estimated to reach 45 billion in the current Iranian year (ending March 20, 2017), up 50% compared with last year, the head of Tobacco Planning and Supervision Center affiliated with the Ministry of Industries, Mining and Trade said.
"So far this year, some 36.2 billion cigarettes have been produced, registering a 53% rise compared with the corresponding period of last year," Ali Asghar Ramzi was quoted by ISNA as saying.

The official estimates that 5.4 billion cigarettes were smuggled into Iran during the period, noting that the figure indicates a 45% decline year-on-year.
