Consumer ProtectionConsumer protection is an essential tool in building up a people-oriented ASEAN Community. ASEAN has been more mindful that consumer interests and welfare have to be taken into account in all measures implemented to achieve an integrated economic region. Consumer protection laws ensure fair competition and the free flow of correct information in the marketplace. At present, only Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Viet Nam have principal consumer protection acts. The remaining ASEAN Member States are planning or are in the process of drafting their consumer protection policies and laws. Meanwhile, consumer protection elements in these countries are covered by other legislations in order to achieve consumer protection objectives.
