The Economics of the Illicit Tobacco Trade in Malaysia
This report seeks to highlight the economic consequences of the illicit trade on all aspects of the Malaysian economy. As well as quantifying the size of the illicit tobacco market, it seeks to estimate the level of tax evasion that occurs due to its existence. Additionally, we explore some measurable examples of the losses the country’s economy has incurred as a direct result of the illicit trade, primarily through the closure of cigarette factories.
