Locals have been encouraged by officials to purchase consumer goods marked with price labels and logos in Lao language.

On March 22, the Head of the Domestic Trade Promotion Department, Ministry of Industry and Commerce, Mr Somxay Nonglath, pledged to regulate and fine merchants who do not clearly price their items accordingly and are actively selling smuggled merchandise.

The Ministry of Industry and Commerce has issued an order making it mandatory for local merchants, producers and distributors to place clear pricing labels on products and to remove all expired products off the shelves.

This measure is intended to protect both the buyers and vendors.

This year, a procedure has been introduced to monitor and control stamping price labels on products and expired products in factories and markets.

The Domestic Trade Promotion Department, Ministry of Industry and Commerce, is currently responsible for regulating and monitoring the stamping price labels and expiration date on products.

For any additional questions or complaints, the general public can reach the Domestic Trade Promotion Department, Ministry of Industry and Commerce via telephone hotline (No 1510)
