DTI strengthens consumer groups, conducts quarterly capability enhancement activities

PROSPERIDAD, Agusan del Sur, Apr. 21 (PIA) – A total of 22 consumer group members have gathered recently for their first quarter meeting cum capability enhancement seminar.

The activity was organized by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) in its effort to provide continuous capability building activities for the province’s consumer groups.

The participants who came from Pagpakabana sa Katungod sa Konsumador sa Agusan del Sur (PAKKADS) and Brgy. 1 Consumer Organization (B1CO) in San Francisco tackled the ways on how to stay safe as consumers online.

During the session, it was learned that there were some members who had been buying items online, and one time bought items online, which did not arrive.  The group vowed to be critical and vigilant in buying in the future.
