Abdulaziz Bin Hathboor, Director of Consumer Protection at Department of Economic Development said: “Our renewed efforts in protecting consumer rights stemmed from the goal of Dubai to become one of the best shopping destinations in the world. The retail sector plays a major role in this regard and we are responsible in ensuring that this sector remains transparent and regulated to fuel its continued growth.”

“We aim to inform the public not only about their rights but also their responsibilities. Familiarizing them with the consumer protection law is a huge factor in avoiding disputes between retailers and customers,” Hathboor continues.
