The main objective of the dialogue was to disseminate the findings of CSEA’s study on “The Economics of Tobacco Control: Modelling the Fiscal and Health Effects of a Tobacco Excise Tax Change in Nigeria” . The study estimates the impact of changes in the excise tax structure and level on cigarette consumption, government revenue, smoking prevalence, net-of-tax revenue, and excise tax burden.

The dialogue also provided a platform for insightful discussions,contributions and feedback from relevant stakeholders including policy-makers, economists, academia, and CSOs which would be used to further strengthen the study.
