    Government proposal leaves markets gasping -- and Italians vaping

    While Italy's 5-Star Movement and League party left financial markets gasping on Friday with promises to raise government spending dramatically, users and producers of electronic cigarettes were breathing more easily. The parties' 57-page "contract", which is supposed to underpin a new coalition government, includes two lines promising to lower levies on smokeless cigarettes to the benefit of Italy's 2 million e-smokers, and a business worth 350 million euros (305.8 million pounds) a year. "Out with the tax on electronic cigarettes!" League leader Matteo Salvini said earlier this week in a video streamed on Facebook, before the programme had been finalised.

    Dutch insurer NN Group (NN.AS) will no longer invest in the tobacco industry and said on Thursday it aims to divest all tobacco-related holdings on its own accounts and in the funds of its asset manager within a year.

"Tobacco no longer fits with our responsible investment approach", NN Chief Investment Officer Jelle van der Giessen said.
