The Department of Trade and Industry Region 02 (DTI R02) entered into a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry to expand consumer education and advocacy initiatives in the region.

The initiative will strengthen the agency’s program on consumer protection as the private sector themselves help educate the public about fair trade laws, consumer rights and responsibilities and dissemination of related information.

The collaboration between DTI and PCCI is expected to increase and widen the reach of DTI’s advocacy program and ensure that business establishments progressively adopt ethical and consumer friendly policies and procedures.
