Executive Summary

Jul 2019

A proposed ban on the domestic cultivation and importation of tobacco by 2020 would spell the end of the legitimate tobacco market in Sri Lanka. Even without a ban, increasingly restrictive regulations, rising taxation, growing consumer health-awareness and an increasingly negative social image are driving down demand for cigarettes, the only significant product area in the country beyond informal traditional alternatives.
