Kep workshop shares new consumer laws with provincial officials

The Consumer Protection, Competition and Fraud Repression Directorate-General (CCF), in cooperation with Germany's international development agency (GIZ), held a January 26 workshop to share details of the implementation of the Competition Act and the Consumer Protection Act on food safety, and related regulations, in Kep province.

The workshop was held in the presence of CCF director-general Phan Oun, Kep deputy governor Hour Mithona and Seng Dalin, a GIZ adviser to economic cooperation and private sector development.

About 150 participants attended the event, including members of the Chambers of Commerce and CCF branches of Kampot, Kep, Kandal and Takeo provinces, and the Kep Provincial Court prosecutor's office.

The workshop served as a forum for the attendees to learn how to raise awareness of the new regulations among relevant parties, including businesses, consumers and law enforcement officers.

It focused on the implementation and benefits of the three laws, particularly a recently approved sub-decree on the management of advertising of products, goods and services.

The regulations are expected to boost fair competition and promote equal and honest business practice by protecting the interests and wellbeing of consumers.
