The Department of Trade and Industry(DTI), in partnership with SM City Olongapo, has launched the Consumer Corner Program recently to widen the access of the general public to consumer-related information and avenues for redress.
According to DTI, this program will enable consumers to become wiser, more vigilant, and empowered. “The Consumer Corner Program is a partnership project with business establishments that aims to strengthen and promote consumer welfare and protection by providing an information desk that is strategically located inside retail stores where consumers can gain access to consumer-related information materials of the DTI.”
