Tobacco consumption to log historic low in H1

SEOUL, Sept. 9 (Yonhap) -- Tobacco consumption in South Korea is estimated to have hit a record low in the first half of this year, as the government's anti-smoking campaign dented shipments by the nation's No. 1 tobacco manufacturer KT&G Corp., industry sources said Monday.

According to the sources, KT&G shipped a total of 26.6 billion cigarettes in the January-June period of this year, down 1.5 percent from the same period in 2012.
