Consumer Protection in Bhutan

The project was supported by the Ministry of Trade and Industry, Royal Government of Bhutan. The scope of the work included identification of major issues of concern regarding consumer protection, preparation of an initial programme of action and a draft comprehensive Consumer Protection Act and suggestions for the institutional set up and its development. A draft report was prepared and discussed in a seminar in Bhutan to finalise the plan of action and the draft consumer protection law. CUTS designed the Consumer Protection Programme and framed a hybrid consumer and competition law for Bhutan.
