Vietnamese Consumer Rights Day will be celebrated annually nationwide on March 15 to raise public awareness on the importance of protecting the rights and interests of consumers and is established under Prime Ministerial Decision No. 1035/QD-TTg.

The day also aims to circulate legal information and policies on the protection of consumer rights and contribute to building a healthy environment for both consumers and traders.

At a ceremony held in Hanoi on March 12 to announce March 15 as Vietnamese Consumer Rights Day, Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc spoke highly of the positive results achieved in implementing policies on the protection of consumer rights.

He emphasized that as Vietnam has joined many free trade agreements and organizations the rights of consumers need to be protected so that the country can effectively integrate into the global community.

Minister of Industry and Trade Vu Huy Hoang told the ceremony that this year’s theme is “Consumer Rights to Safety”.

According to the Vietnam Competition Authority, 50 out of 63 cities and provinces nationwide have planned activities for the day.
