(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) The 14th meeting of the Arab Consumer Protection Union got underway here on Saturday, under the theme "partners for developing our local communities."

Conferees are discussing a host of issues during the three-day gathering, such as efforts of Arab societies for protection of the consumers, combating fraud, reviewing works of the union since 2008 and endorsing proposed amendments on the charter of the federation.

They are also scheduled to examine governments' efforts in the realm of fighting trade in bogus commodities, relevant legislations and fake trade marks.

The participants in the meeting are also examining how government laws can stop fraud by medical insurance companies, role of women in disclosing fraud, in addition to the role of the media to enhance public awareness of such illegal acts.

Bogus commodities are traded on a wide scale in some Arab countries. Many of such fake items originate from producers in Asia, where cheap labor is widely available.
