Cuba is preparing to unveil a new tourist attraction inspired by the country's famed cigar industry. Cuba's Tourism Ministry (Mintur) announced recently it will launch the Tobacco Trail or Tobacco Route in September, during this year's tourism and nature fair (Turnat) in westernmost Pinar del Rio province, home to lush tobacco plantations. "We aim to show visitors all the steps involved in an enterprise that has distinguished this province for centuries," said Deborah Henriquez, Mintur's provincial delegate. The Tobacco Trail will begin in the town of Consolacion del Sur, the gateway to the province, and feature the verdant Vinales Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where the leaves used to roll Cuba's world-renowned Habanos are cultivated. Regional tobacco is prized as the world's finest, said Henriquez, who hopes the new route will help attract more tourists. "That's where we got the idea of creating a circuit that covers the complete production cycle, from the seeds to the smoke," she said. Together with the provincial administrative council, said Henriquez, "we have selected the plantations, the tobacco barns (where leaves are cured), the different facilities of the pre-processing phase, and the experienced producers." While new tobacco sowing methods have been introduced in the region, many traditional farming techniques are still in use, including old-fashioned plows powered by oxen. Tourists will also visit factories where Cuba's premium hand-rolled cigars are individually made. The national industry produces some 140 million cigars each year. Through such initiatives, Cuba aims to diversify its tourist attractions and draw visitors inland. The country's beach resort of Varadero is already well known to the three million foreign visitors that arrive in Cuba annually, mainly from Canada and Europe. Spurred by the restoration of ties between Cuba and the United States, tourism to the island has increased, rising more than 21 percent in May compared to that of the year before, according to the national statistics institute (ONEI). Cuba is home to a total of nine UNESCO-designated World Heritage Sites, including the Vinales Valley, which the UN agency describes as ringed by mountains and dotted with a series of "dramatic" rocky outcrops "that rise abruptly from the flat plain."

  • Tobacco Giant Sues Australia
    Tobacco Giant Sues Australia

    More than $50 million of taxpayer money is expected to go up in smoke defending cigarette plain packaging in a secretive international tribunal in Singapore.But costs will pile much higher if Australia loses on its first defence that Philip Morris indulged in cynical "venue shopping" by shifting its headquarters to Hong Kong to sue Australia. The West Australian can reveal the Attorney-General's Department, which is running the case in defence of plain packaging, called former Labor treasurer Wayne Swan as a witness before a special tribunal sitting in Singapore back in February. Philip Morris, which is claiming the plain packaging regime harms its intellectual property in such famous brands as Marlboro, Peter Jackson and Longbeach, called its own high-profile witnesses, also at considerable cost. Among Philip Morris' witnesses have been former High Court judge Ian Callinan who gave evidence on administrative law. If the tribunal finds unfavourably against Australia in a preliminary decision, expected in September, former health minister Nicola Roxon and her former departmental secretary Jane Halton are among those likely to be hauled before the tribunal later this year. Australia argues that Philip Morris, in anticipation of Labor's plain packaging legislation in 2011, restructured itself so that its Australian subsidiary became wholly owned by the Hong Kong-based Philip Morris Asia. This allowed Philip Morris to sue Australia under so-called investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) provisions of a 1993 bilateral agreement with Hong Kong that allowed compensation for "expropriation" of investments. ISDS provisions have been criticised by the High Court Chief Justice Robert French and the Productivity Commission which warned they gave foreigners greater legal rights than Australian companies, exposed local business to potentially large liabilities and were red tape-heavy. There are concerns similar provisions in the yet-to-be-concluded 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement, it would constrain the listing and pricing of medicines under the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme. Trade Minister Andrew Robb dismissed ISDS concerns, stressing Australia was party to ISDS provisions with 29 other countries over three decades, "and the sun has still come up". Labor, which formally discontinued inclusion of ISDS provisions in free trade agreements in 2011, said Australians were understandably concerned about foreign interference in healthcare, public services and environmental protection. "The tobacco plain packaging case highlights the dangers of ISDS provisions," shadow trade minister Penny Wong said. "Mr Robb has still not explained why he agreed to the inclusion of an ISDS in the China FTA when the Howard Government successfully negotiated the US FTA without one." Mr Robb responded: "The only case that has ever been brought against Australia was in response to Labor's cigarette plain packaging laws. Australia was defending this case and it was not yet resolved." He said ISDS provided protections for Australian investors abroad in countries which may not have reliable political or legal systems. It is understood that under the China-Australia FTA, the scope, form and content of the future ISDS mechanism is yet to be negotiated. A spokesman for Philip Morris said governments has the right to "experiment" with taxpayers' money but should not be surprised when companies and countries asserted their rights. "Philip Morris is seeking compensation from the Australian Government for its plain packaging experiment which deprives us of our brands and intellectual property, and for treating Philip Morris and its investments unfairly and inequitably through changing arbitrarily our legal and regulatory environment," the spokesman said. "Our claims address the unlawfulness of the expropriation of property and do not question the need for comprehensive regulation of tobacco products."

  • Bales of Tobacco Go Up in Smoke
    Bales of Tobacco Go Up in Smoke

    Mashonaland Tobacco Company (MTC) yesterday lost tobacco when one of its warehouses along Simon Mazorodze Road was gutted by fire in a suspected case of arson. Some of the workers who declined to be named, said the warehouse had more than 5 000 bales of tobacco when the inferno swept accross the building. Reports say workers were disgruntled over undisclosed dispute with management. The fire started around 10 am and by evening, fire figheters from Harare City Council were still struggling to extingusih it. The cause of the fire could not be ascertained and the company officials said they were still to establish the cause. In the morning, the crop was smoldering but it later burst into huge flames around 4pm, destroying the upper part of the warehouse and causing the roof to collapse. Several fire tenders were at the scene and bulk water containers were brought in during the evening. MTC finance director, Mr Walker Ntini, said the extent of the damage could only be established today. "We can only determine the extent of the damage after the fire has been put out. By tomorrow (today) we will have all the facts. "We have a significant loss of tobacco. We were alerted of a fire around 10am and the fire fighters responded swiftly. They attended in less than an hour. The affected tobacco had just been bought from farmers and had not been processed," he said. Mr Ntini said MTC was in the business of processing and packaging of tobacco and supplied cigarette manufactures with the processed crop. "The tobacco is also exported to Europe, Asia and Africa especially South Africa," he said. Mr Ntini said the capacity of the warehouse and estimation of the damages was confidential. "We have competitors and we cannot release some information," he said. He could not comment on the disgruntlement by some workers. The factory was closed yesterday and some workers who had come for the afternoon shift were sent back home.

  • 5 Simple Rules for Vaping in Public
    5 Simple Rules for Vaping in Public

    Most of us vape for health reasons (or so that we don’t smell like an ashtray!), but we sometimes forget that not everybody shares in our enthusiasm, or realizes that our clouds of vapor are all but harmless. With the growing amount of regulation now banning the use of e-cigarettes in public, it’s a sad reality that many people see us as a nuisance. Despite our disagreements with these highly misinformed individuals, we must continue to respect their rights and wishes. Although the rules aren’t set in stone, here are a few tips on vaping in public responsibly, while still enjoying the clear benefits of a smoke-free life. 1.) Don’t Assume… ALWAYS ASK. One thing that some vapers do, that angers both myself and non-smokers alike, is assume that they can vape anywhere because it’s not smoking. Even if it’s legal, it’s called common courtesy.
