SHENZHEN, China-Thursday 12 May 2022 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE) -- China’s leading vaping media, Bluehole New Consumption, today publishes an industry comment on Vuse overtaking Juul and becoming the U.S vaping market champion again.

Here below is the full article:

According to Nielsen, for the two weeks ended April 9, 2022, Vuse has surpassed Juul and become No.1 in U.S. e-cigarette sales with a market share of 35 percent, driven by the sale of its flagship product Vuse Alto, which represented over 90% of Vuse revenues in the U.S. in 2021.

New policy paper defines continent’s stance ahead of COP27
LAGOS, Nigeria-Thursday 12 May 2022 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE) -- With hopes for countering global warming pinned on progress at the upcoming COP27 UN Climate Change Conference in Egypt, a new report from the Africa Finance Corporation (AFC), Africa’s leading infrastructure solutions provider, sets out the continent’s stance by balancing the need for emissions reduction with critical development imperatives.

The report, Roadmap to Africa’s COP: A Pragmatic Path to Net Zero, is set within a context where Africa has borne the brunt of the most devastating impacts of climate change, while contributing little to global emissions. This low carbon output reflects Africa’s crippling energy deficit, which has stymied industrialisation and economic development. Africa, therefore, needs a realistic agenda for addressing climate change which allows the region to also continue adva ... Read more »
