CAIRO – 21 May 2017: The Consumer Protection Agency (CPA) is set to launch a new administration specifically targeting tourist consumers, CPA Chairman Atef Yacoub announced Sunday, during a meeting held at the headquarters of the Arab League.
The “Tourist Consumer Protection Agency” aims to protect all foreigners visiting Egypt, Yacoud said.
“The tourist is a visitor and he shouldn’t leave Cairo with complaints from a merchant,” CPA Chairman stated.
In light of the Arab League’s third meeting, gathering a group of Arab and international experts in the field of consumer protection, Yacoub stated that Arab countries have witnessed successful results with tourists under the protection of such an agency , whether in the Gulf of African states.
Yacoub further referred to the role of the media in protecting the Egyptian consumer and alerting the CPA.
