Improving Tobacco Tax Policies in the Republic of Serbia

Although smoking prevalence in Serbia is still relatively high, increases in the price of tobacco products have led to an increase in excise revenues from tobacco. This policy brief examines the research findings from the Institute of Economic Sciences (IES) relating to tobacco taxes, and the positive effect it will have on overall population health and the economy in Serbia. Lastly, the recommendations from the research are discussed.

This brief is based on a report published by IES.
