Fresh from making successful stops in Limpopo and KwaZulu-Natal, the Department of Trade and Industry’s (
) national education and awareness campaign on consumer and corporate regulation legislation will make an anticipated stop-over in the Eastern Cape from 19 – 21 July 2017.
According to the Minister of Trade and Industry, Dr Rob Davies,
has resolved to undertake this campaign as a remedy to the lack of readily available information that currently exists, particularly in far-flung rural areas where the flow of information is not always guaranteed and does not always reach the intended targets.
that The pieces of the legislation that will be covered during this campaign are the Liquor , National Gambling , Lotteries, National Credit,, Consumer Protection, Copyright, Performers and Companies Acts.
“With this campaign, we firstly aim to engage with members of the public, educate them about the implications of these Acts on their daily lives and also promote a culture of activism and exercising of their rights using these pieces of legislation as their last line of defence,” says Davies.
The Eastern Cape leg of this awareness campaign will be held in Port Elizabeth, Queenstown and East London from 19 – 21 July respectively.
“We have delegated the most well-equipped officials to field questions on any of these Acts We do look forward to extensive and educational engagements with the public and hope that at the conclusion of this campaign we will have empowered citizens with the know-how to do what is right for them and their communities,” says Davies.
