This is an opportunity to draw attention every year to the fundamental rights of all consumers, to respecting their needs and to protecting them. The significance of this day is to highlight the rights of all consumers and protect them from exploitation, discrimination, and other forms of unfair practices. This year’s theme, “Fair Play,” resonates deeply. It compels us to strive for a marketplace where consumers are treated with respect, where information is transparent, and where competition fosters innovation and affordability.
