Abstract

China is the world’s greatest producer and consumer of cigarettes. According to a survey done in 1984, about 38% of Chinese aged 20 years and above are current smokers. The tobacco industry has developed greatly since 1981. The areas for cultivating tobacco increased from 590,000 hectares in 1981 to 1.85 million hectares in 1992. The total production and consumption of cigarettes almost doubled in that same period. Per capita consumption of cigarettes per person (children included) increased from 880 cigarettes in 1981 to 1400 cigarettes in 1992.
