The work coordination meeting 1/2022 of the Myanmar Consumer Protection Commission was held yesterday at the Ministry of Commerce and Union Minister U Aung Naing Oo of the Ministry of Commerce, in his capacity as the commission chair, gave the opening remark.
First, the commission chair said although eight consumer rights are provided under the Consumer Protection Law the consumer rights and their scope are advanced and becoming broader in line with the changing era. However, consumers have responsibilities as the majority of consumers lack knowledge about the rights and responsibilities of consumers. The commission prioritizes awareness activities among consumers, he highlighted.
The consumer protection committees were formed in Nay Pyi Taw Council Area, regions and states under the law. Respective committees need to make efforts in order to protect consumers as they have a closer relationship with consumers, the Union minister added.
“We are implementing consumer protection in line with the ASEAN Consumer Protection Committee. Besides, Myanmar takes an alternate chairmanship in 2022. Members are urged to put forward the measures that should be undertaken for the benefit of consumers,” he stressed.
Then, the commission secretary director-general of the Department of Consumer Affairs discussed and the commission chair, vice-chairs and members made meeting resolutions. — MNA/GNLM
