tobaccoasia 27 Davidoff Winston Churchill Limited Edition 2016 The Wall Events will see aficionados flocking to this venue in Macau, a never-ending source of interest- ing finds, for an opportunity to participate monthly in "Slow Smoking Competitions" or "Blind Tasting Sessions". Their members will also receive weekly emails with very attractive discounts up to 40%, each deal being valid for a few days only. And since more players are entering Asia and eyeing the Chinese market in particular, with its potential for strong development, we cannot avoid mentioning the recently established China Cigar & Pipe Retail Association. The association aims to regulate the Chinese cigar and pipe market, make effective use of the resources of the national cigar industry, channel the effort of individuals and groups to aid government departments in developing Chinese cigar, establish systematic retail network, coordinate with governmental departments on behalf of members to increase their operating space, and promote the overall advancement and image of China's cigar retailing. It is a vast task but one that may certainly change the current landscape. The financial and property markets go through highs and lows, we have our anxieties about life and the direction the world is heading to, but at least we know one thing's for sure: cigar makers never cease their efforts to provide us with the best means of for- getting all these worries for a while and just enjoy the simple pleasure of a good smoke!
