Hanoi (VNA) – The programme “Act for consumer rights” will be held in Hanoi throughout March with a series of activities.

The annual programme is held in response to the World Consumer Rights Day (March 15) and aims to improve businesses’ responsibility as well as consumers’ awareness of their rights and consumption activities.

At a meeting on the programme implementation on January 26, Deputy Director of the Hanoi Department of Industry and Trade said the campaign, first held five years ago, has attracted the interest of enterprises and consumers along with relevant agencies and organisations.

Among the highlights of the programme, throughout March, the Month for Consumer Rights, high-quality goods are to be sold at reasonable prices at more than 100 locations across the capital city.

A celebration responding to the World Consumer Rights Day is scheduled to be broadcast live on the Hanoi Radio and Television Station on March 18.

A festival will also be organised at various places on March 19 – 20 to sell quality products and provide repair and maintenance services and other customer care packages.

Meanwhile, consumers’ right to accessing accurate and sufficient information about goods and services will be the theme of a discussion to be aired on the Hanoi Radio and Television Station.

Notably, communication activities during this year’s programme will be updated on the event’s website quyennguoitieudunghanoi.vn and via social networks.-VNA
