In Tunisia, the vape is a thorny subject. Despite the expectations of many smokers and vapers as well as the explosion of the e-cigarette market in the world, the country does not seem to want to liberalize on the vape. If some denounce a deafening silence on the subject, a few days ago Sahbi Ben Fredj , a member of the National Coalition indignant " against the hypocrisy that prevails in the e-cigarette market in Tunisia".
The Member of the National Coalition, Sahbi Ben Fredj indignantly, in a post published yesterday against the hypocrisy prevailing in the vape market in Tunisia. According to him, there is a real problem of opportunity in the country and the current monopoly of the RNTA (National tobacco and match board) clearly prevents investors from wagering on the vape while it is a booming sector in the world.
« I discovered the Vape market during the month of Ramadan. I discovered a world of mismanagement, bad faith and irresponsible decisions and against all logic: the electronic cigarette is banned in Tunisia, it is actually not prohibited by law, but in practice. Basically, the law prohibits the import of necessary equipment and gives this monopoly to the RNTA, which has not imported a drop of liquid or a single electronic cigarette and has therefore not sold any cigarettes for three years The MP wrote.
« Result of the races, the setting up of a parallel market, the profusion of counterfeit products that are not subject to any control and the loss in terms of job opportunities, in a promising and booming sector. I think it's a good question for the Minister of Finance to ask him about RNTA... ", Concluded Sahbi Ben Fredj.
