ABSTRACT
The article discusses the significance of the Chinese tobacco industry to the growth of British American Tobacco (BAT). It was noted that the state monopoly, China Tobacco, chokes off supply by foreigners and that trade barrier causes much anguish at BAT because one-third of the nation's 1.3 billion people smoke, making it by far the world's largest tobacco market. Thus, BAT can now send only 1 billion sticks per year into China, a market of 1.8 trillion sticks.
