The National - Consumers Urged to Learn Their Rights in the UAE

UAE has the best consumer protection within the region, but only few people knows about it. As a consumer, understanding and exercising our rights is our primary responsibility.

"[Dubai's] Department of Economic Development has a website and provides information for people in relation to their legal rights but many people still don't know what they are,"

"The authorities can only do so much in educating consumers. At the end of the day, the public have to take a step themselves and learn their rights."

Government create way through advertisements and serving information on the web, but some of the residents still don't know their rights; either they don't research them properly or no interest of knowing it. Common mistakes for expatriates that consumer rights from their country is the same in the UAE. Starting today, I took a part of answering consumer related question each week to raise their awareness about laws and their rights.
