Dubai to Setup Consumer Protection and Fair Trade Body
The Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum announced that a new institution dedicated to consumer protection and fair trade will be established in Dubai.
The move will consolidate Dubai’s position as one of the main hubs of global economy, particularly in trade and business, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of The Executive Council, said.
“The trade sector is a major backbone of our economy, and our markets today offer quality and rich options that make them one of the fastest-growing markets in the world and attractive to business. We continue to strengthen our leadership position through an integrated system that supports equal opportunities and ensures the protection of business interests.”
Chairing a meeting of The Executive Council at the Women’s Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, Sheikh Hamdan said the institution’s objectives will be to focus on reducing practices harmful to competition, raising awareness of commercial establishments about their rights and duties, protecting intellectual property rights, among other things.
The Executive Council also approved a policy aimed at addressing drug abuse and addiction, as well as rehabilitation.
The new policy will review the treatment and rehabilitation system for addiction, monitor recovery rates among individuals, and intensify preventive awareness programmes in partnership with concerned authorities.
The initiative is part of Dubai’s commitment to enhance preventive awareness in partnership with relevant entities and ensure the protection of the community.
Dubai will also implement integrated programmes and policies that support the recovery of affected individuals and empower them to reconnect with society.
