Impact Analysis of Tobacco Tax Increases Using I-O Tables

This study employs an input-output (IO) table to identify the winners and losers of taxation policies (both within Sri Lanka and at the border). Specifically, the study will identify how tobacco tax changes will affect economic activities at different industries/sectors. The impact of indirect taxes levied on tobacco products will be traced through the IO table to the related industries – i.e., growing of tobacco, manufacturer of tobacco products, and manufacturer of machinery for tobacco processing.
