Qatar instructs restaurants to display prices or face ‘stern’ action

The Consumer Protection Department (CPD) at the Qatari economy and commerce ministry has launched a crackdown on eateries that fail to display their prices prominently at their premises after repeated complaints about the lack of monitoring of restaurants, especially their prices, the Peninsula has reported. The department recently made it mandatory for all eateries to prepare a price list and display it prominently at their entrance for information of the public. Eateries that fail to comply with the declared prices will face stern action, including hefty fines, said the CPD.
