Pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 1098 dated September 26, 199, the country will be celebrating the Consumer Welfare Month every October. This year’s theme is “Making Digital Marketplaces Fairer”. The theme emphasizes the importance of effective consumer protection that responds to the challenges of the digital economy and the development of cross-border retail trade.
This year’s theme is “Sustainable Consumer in the New Normal”, which calls for a change in consumer behaviour and for the adoption of responsible consumption practise by the business sector.
