Tanzanian leaf tobacco bound for China

| July 29, 2014

China’s Yunnan Tobacco International (YTI) has said it will start buying leaf tobacco from Tanzania this season with a purchase of 10 million kg, according to a story in the Daily News.

The move follows the signing of a bilateral trade agreement during Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to Tanzania in March last year.

The vice-president of YTI, Yang Xuemei, reportedly said that, depending on demand from China’s side and trade relations between the two countries, the volume of tobacco bought was expected to increase next year.
