October is Consumer Welfare Month
By Entrepreneur Staff |

Informed and involved Filipino consumers is the main key for a product quality and safety conscious society, Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Secretary Gregory L. Domingo states as the nation celebrates the 13th Consumer Welfare Month (CWM) this October.
“We are envisioning that in a few years, Filipino consumers are properly informed and are actively involved on programs for them and on issues they face through strong public-private partnerships,” Secretary Domingo emphasizes.
Every October, the DTI reiterates its commitment in reinforcing its services, programs and activities to protect the interests of the consumers with the continued assistance of the Philippine industries.
October was declared the Consumer Welfare Month based on Proclamation number 1098 of 1997.  The month of October gives national attention on the role that consumers play in the vitality of the Philippines’ economy.  Also, concerted efforts for consumer protection are discussed, planned and carried out during this month.
“The DTI enjoins the nation in celebrating this important event, the CWM, this October,” Secretary Domingo reminds the general public. “Yet the DTI services the consumers all year round for their immediate protection,” he underscores.
