Saudi proposal for GCC Consumer Protection Council gets approval
A major GCC workshop on consumer protection has authorized Saudi Arabia’s proposal to set up Supreme Council for Consumer Protection in the GCC states. According to Dr. Nasser Al-Tuwaim, chairman of the Saudi Consumer Protection Association (CPA), the recommendations of the workshop, recently concluded in Doha, will be introduced to the next summit meeting of the Supreme Council of GCC leaders for approval.
Al-Tuwaim made the proposals while addressing the workshop on best practices to distinguish between original and counterfeit products that closed in Doha. The four-day event was set up by the Consumer Protection Department (CPD) under the Qatari Ministry of Business and Trade.
