Spain, Austria, Germany, China, Switzerland, the Czech Republic and the UAE were the main countries from where the imports were made, Mizan Online reported.
Domestic production of cigarettes hit 45 billion in Iran in the last fiscal year (March 2016-17), close to 15 billion more than the year before. Moreover, 4 billion cigarettes were imported last year, down from 16.4 billion in the previous year, indicating a 76% drop.
