Egypt: Supply Minister Pledges to Further Tighten Monitoring On Market

Supply Minister Mohamed Abu-Shadi said the 2014 constitution, passed by the Egyptians by more than 98%, stated that protecting the Egyptian consumer is an inherent right.

In the coming period, Abu-Shadi said a new legislation will be implemented to tightening monitoring on the market to combat commercial cheating and selling outdated commodities or those of an unknown source.

This came during a workshop on the advertising code of ethics and consumer protection, which was held on Monday 20/1/2014 in the presence of Information Minister Doria Sharaf el-Din, Head of Egyptian Advertising Association Hazem Dera and Head of Consumer Protection Agency Atef Jacob.
