Minister of Economy and Trade, Raoul Naameh, held a meeting with various governors in his office at the Ministry this morning, in the presence of the Ministry’s Acting Director General Mousa Karim, and the Director of Consumer Protection Tarek Younis.
Naameh emphasized “the importance of cooperation between the Ministries of Economy & Trade and Interior and Municipalities, in training staff from each municipality to intensify monitoring efforts and support the Consumer Protection Directorate in all Lebanese provinces and towns.” This step is one of the measures he proposed during the cabinet session last Thursday, to intensify monitory control.
During the meeting, a mechanism and plan were agreed upon to start training the municipal police and units, to coordinate with the Consumer Protection Directorate in this respect.
Discussions also touched on the municipalities’ powers and capabilities with regards to control and the prevention of monopoly and fraud.
