Breaking: Consumer protection, e-commerce draft laws adopted

The Council of Ministers has approved two draft laws, a national strategy bill for financial inclusion and four solar energy projects with a total expected installed capacity of 140 megawatts.

The draft laws on consumer protection and e-commerce were among the instruments approved during Friday’s cabinet meeting which was presided over by Prime Minister Hun Sen.

A press release detailing the result of the full session meeting said Cambodia is the only member of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) which has not adopted the law on consumer protection.

“It [the draft law] not only protects consumers from dishonest merchants but also stipulates the information that needs to be provided to consumers and allows the regulator to prepare regulations on information standard that merchants have to comply with,” government spokesperson Phay Siphan said.
