The Ministry of Trade is continuing its activities towards putting a legislative framework in place for consumer protection.

At a press conference on Monday, October 19th Director of Trade, Mathan Walter announced the latest is a series of three workshops related to consumer protection matters which gets underway this week.

He says the thrust of the Ministry is to ensure that consumers in Dominica benefit from robust protection laws.

“[We] believe that the word consumer should be equated with citizen and that consumer protection law should be regarded as an aspect of civic rights,” Walter said.

Three workshops have been organized; the first began on Monday October 19th and will end on the 20th. It focused on consumer protection law and policy.
