Independent Authority for Public Revenue (AADE) head Giorgos Pitsilis and Papastratos chairman and CEO Christos Harpantidis have signed a cooperation agreement aimed at battling the illicit trade in tobacco products, it was announced on Friday.
The agreement strengthens strategic cooperation between the two sides to combat the illicit trade.
"Our world changes when each one of us changes for the better," Papastratos believes. The fact that they were recently awarded as one of the world-changing companies, in the annual "Change The World" survey, certifies that these are not just words, but that they put into practice their commitment to a sustainable, cigarette-free world.
With a growing number of smokers switching to IQOS, a tobacco-heating device which delivers a nicotine hit without actually burning the tobacco, the Papastratos production facility in Aspropyrgos is playing a significant role in turning the country into a major export center for Philip Morris International, Andre Calantzopoulos, the chief executive officer of US multinational Philip Morris Inte
Rental rates for modern office spaces have recorded an increase of up to 11 percent over the last 12 months as a result of steady high demand and a lack of new developments: This means that interested investors are forced to seek spaces almost exclusively within the existing and quite saturated stock of commercial properties in terms of quality.
Philip Morris International, the manufacturer of the iQOS tobacco heating unit, will invest in the creation of a call center in Bulgaria, Christos Harpandis, Managing Director for Southeastern Europe, told Money.bg. The new call center is expected to be operational in the third quarter of 2019. The company has not yet decided whether it will be in Sofia or another city in Bulgaria.
