London, 16 March 2021:
On the occasion of the International Day for Consumer Protection yesterday, Libya’s Supreme Committee for Consumer Protection launched the National Consumer Protection Strategy at an event in Tripoli yesterday. The event adopted the banner of “No to Plastic Pollution”.
The Consumer Protection Strategy will be presented to the new Libyan Government of National Unity for approval, according to the outgoing Ministry of Economy.
The outgoing Ministry clarified that the project represents a road map of the measures that the government must take in order to provide protection for consumers and distribute roles to the competent authorities.
In its strategy, the Ministry proposed establishing an independent specialized body for consumer protection, in addition to adopting a constitutional law that establishes all consumer rights.
