TEMPO.CO, Nusa Dua - The Customs and Excise Directorate General’s acting technical director and excise facilities, Nugroho Wahyu Widodo, said that the volume of cigarette sales in the first half of 2018 fell 5.5 percent.

As of June, 272 billion cigarettes were sold, down from June 2017’s 288 billion.
