The theme proposed this year by the Consumers International is “Trusted Smart Products“, which aims to provide consumers with the knowledge to buy Smart products safe to usege, as well as developing their decision-making power over their rights as consumers.
The event was also attended by internationally invited representatives from the Romanian, French, Ukrainian and Armenian institutions that have exposed the national experience of consumer protection through international practices. In this context, the major objectives of the consumer protection institution in the Republic of Moldova are the development of cooperation relations through the exchange of experience and the taking of good practices from the developed countries in this respect.
Representatives of ministries, associations, which have an important role to play in supporting and defending consumer rights, were also present. The events was also attended by students and academia, and by representative of civil society and NGOs.
