Abstract: The tobacco industry widely covers the primary raw material sector including tobacco leaves, cloves and the cigarette processing sub-industries. The role of the tobacco commodity is prominent in the national economy as a source of state revenue from excise tax. The value of the tax revenues from year to year continues to increase. The increase in the tobacco excise tax is due to the policy of increasing the retail price of tobacco and thus, the cost of tobacco excise. The purpose of this study is to find out how big the influence of the tobacco industry is on the national economy. This paper uses analytical methods paired with a qualitative methodology. The results have concluded that the tobacco industry on the one side plays a role in the national economy and on the other hand, has a negative impact on public health and the environment. The government's assertiveness to protect people against the negative impact of cigarettes is needed through measures to increase cigarette prices, increase the cigarette taxes, and to further the cigarette promotion restrictions in cigarette advertisements and sponsorship activities involving young people. The conclusion is that the government should seek other solutions to improve the national economy aside from cigarette taxes. (More)
