DTI orients students on consumer rights, laws

SAN JOSE, ANTIQUE (PIA) -- The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI)- Antique has recently oriented the senior high school students from Sebaste High School and Bitadton National High School with knowledge on consumer rights and responsibilities, fair trade, and other consumer-related laws.

DTI- Antique Development Specialist Arnel Oliveros said that the activity hopes to equip the students with essential knowledge and understanding of their rights and responsibilities as consumers.

During the session, students were provided with comprehensive insights into the various facets of consumer protection, focusing specifically on deceptive sales practices, unconscionable sales practices, and the perils associated with unfair and misleading products and services.

By highlighting these critical issues, Oliveros enjoined the students to make informed decisions while engaging in consumer transactions.

DTI also engaged the participants in discussions on consumer protection laws

and regulations so they could as well share their experiences as consumers.

“By being aware of their rights, they can assert themselves and take appropriate action when faced with deceptive or unconscionable sales practices,” Oliveros said.

In addition, the activity likewise aims to cultivate a sense of consumer consciousness and responsibility among the students, encouraging them to be vigilant and discerning consumers.

Oliveros stressed that this activity has been a regular undertaking of DTI to provide the students and the consumers, in general, the essential knowledge of the complexities of the consumer market. (AGP/PSM/PIA Antique)
