Consumers at UNCTAD: Our Dialogue for Action

This July we joined policy makers and global consumer experts gathering for the Eighth Session of UNCTAD’s Intergovernmental Group of Experts (IGE) on Consumer Protection Law and Policy.

As global consumer advocates, we discussed the vital role of consumer organisations in fostering fair and equitable societies, and how governments can support their growth and collaboration. We shared our dialogue for action in a discussion on how government can enhance the consumer movement. In the IGE's Agreed Conclusions member states are actively encouraged to support the movementrecognising the trusted role consumer groups play.
