The retail price for filter or non-filter cigarettes can not be lower than the benchmark one
This is stipulated by amendments to the Law on 2017 State budget proposed by Oleg Reidman and Stefan Creanga and adopted by the Parliament at the ultimate reading. In line with them, setting the retail price for filter or non-filter cigarettes lower than the benchmark is fined 50% of the value of the cigarettes that have been found in a storehouse, except for the supplies made before January 1, 2017, but no less than MDL 1,000.Let’s remind that the benchmark for retail prices for filter and non-filter cigarettes has been applied in Moldova since January 1, 2017. In particular, the benchmark price for a pack of filter cigarettes is MDL 16, while that for a pack of non-filter cigarettes has been set at MDL 7. // 20.03.2017- InfoMarket.
