March 15 commemorates the definition of consumer rights, outlined by US President John F. Kennedy. He was the first world leader to set out a vision of consumer rights and he also recognized the importance of consumers as a group. Kennedy gave the American consumer four basic rights: the right to safety, to choose, to information and to be heard. The aim of WRCD is to celebrate solidarity within the international consumer rights movement.
Dominica’s Windsor park sports stadium forecourt will come alive on that day as many products and items will be on display. The Ministry of Trade along with the Dominica Consumer Protection Association (DCPA) will host this event. Executive member of the Dominica consumer protection Kamisha Dominique shared a few of the rights of the consumer, and what they could do, if their rights have been infringed upon, one such issue being expired products or false advertising.
