Our broad geographic footprint provides many future growth opportunities across EU and non-EU markets.
Our position in EU markets provides us with opportunities to further develop our total tobacco portfolio. The key consumer trend across the EU is one of value as consumers are seeking value brands and products. With the breadth and versatility of our portfolio we are capitalising on this trend.
We operate in a diverse array of non-EU markets, where there are many opportunities for us to develop our business. We are particularly focused on developing our key strategic brands in emerging markets.
We have a significant presence in Eastern Europe, Africa and the Middle East, and in a number of markets in the Asia-Pacific region.
