Tobacco sales licensees to be announced

| March 25, 2013

The names of the successful applicants for licences to sell tobacco under Hungary’s soon-to-be-introduced state monopoly of tobacco retailing are due to be announced by April 23, according to an MTI – EcoNews story.

The story was based on a statement by the communications director for the National Tobacco Trade Non-profit organization, which is overseeing the change to the monopoly system, reported in the daily, Magyar Nemzet.

Legislation approved in September establishes a state monopoly for the retail sale of tobacco products from July 1.

Businesses had until February 22 to apply for the tobacco retail licences.
