Consumer and competition protection
As consumers are considered to be the weaker party on the market, their interests are protected both by law and in practice. The priority policies of consumer protection include consumer education and information, as well as consumer advice.
The principle objective of competition protection is to ensure both consumer benefits and healthy business growth and development. The Ministry of Economic Development and Technology thus ensures that, on the free market, undertakings compete with each other fairly on the basis of their products and prices, without unfair advantages.
