Cuba’s Havana Cigar Sales Up Slightly

HAVANA TIMES, Feb. 22 — The sale of cigars marketed by the Habanos S.A. company grew two per cent in 2010 and it is expected that this year a similar level will be maintained, said Javier Terrés, vice president of development of the company, a joint venture between the British Imperial Tobacco Group and the island’s government. Terres said, “The coming into force of the anti-smoking restrictions, one of Europe’s harshest, in Spain will affect cigar sales,” reported IPS.
