Last month the Serbian Customs Administration and Japan Tobacco International (JTI) signed a cooperation agreement aimed at fighting the illicit trade of tobacco products.

The two parties agreed to exchange information and provide any other professional and technical assistance to each other in the fight against smuggling and counterfeiting of cigarettes.

In 2010 the Serbian Customs Administration prevented the smuggling of over 30 million cigarettes, the total value of which is approximately EUR 1 million (USD 1.35 million).
