first_img…aims to sensitise students on consumers’ affairsIn observance of Consumer Rights Day, which will be celebrated on Thursday, the Competition and Consumers Affairs Commission (CCAC) will be hosting a student’s consumers’ awareness exposition at the National Exhibition Complex, Sophia, Georgetown.The exposition is aimed at equipping the targeted audience (students) with the mandatory knowledge needed to make good purchasing decisions in keeping with the Consumer Affairs Act 2011.Students from schools across Georgetown will be educated on the levels of protection that they are entitled to under the law – protection provided by the Consumer Affairs Division and protection by the CCAC.The exposition is set to offer a set of advisories and know-how tools and to inform the public on the rights that they have in any buyer-seller scenario.It is also meant to build consumers’ confidence to accept and pay for only services and products that they are satisfied with.In recent years, the Tourism Ministry had launched a “Know Your Consumer Rights” campaign, as Minister Cathy Hughes urged the Consumer Affairs Division to pay attention to the difficulties consumers often experience with regard to the poor quality of goods and services available on the market. The target audience for this campaign is consumers from low to medium socio-economic areas since they are traditionally less likely to know and exercise their rights than those from the higher socio-economic brackets.last_img read more
