Myanmar to Enact Consumer Protection Law

MYANMAR is preparing to enact the Consumer Protection Law in a bid to ensure safety of locally manufactured products, said Khin Maung Lay, Myanmar’s Director General of the Ministry of Commerce.

“The key point is to protect the consumers, and there are also promises (we) made to the other ASEAN countries.

“Meanwhile, if something goes wrong, the parties concerned (can) seek a solution together, rather than getting punished,” the director general said during a workshop on consumer protection at the ministry office in Yangon.
