UAE telco, du has entered into an agreement with Dubai Economy to educate consumers, brand owners and commercial agencies about consumer confidence and empowerment. The agreement was recently signed between Mohamed Ali Rashed Lootah, CEO of commercial compliance, consumer protection (CCCP) sector in Dubai Economy, and Ahmad Aburahima, SVP, government relations at du.

du will support initiatives related to the consumer confidence Index, the consumer empowerment index, and workshops to educate business owners. The consumer confidence index predicts consumer confidence when it comes to economic activity and performance, while the consumer empowerment index, the first-of-its-kind in the region and the second in the world after the EU Commission, aims to measure consumer awareness of their rights and duties in Dubai. 

Mohamed Ali Rashed Lootah said: "Through this partnership, we aim to raise consumer awareness by organising a variety of programmes for each region in Dubai. We are committed to ensure transparency and security in buying and selling procedures in the retail sector, which is the main driver of the local economy in line with the highest quality standards and practices in the world.”

Ahmad Aburahima said: "We are keen to support government initiatives aimed at promoting a transparent and secure economic environment in terms of dealing between consumers and business owners. Through this partnership with Dubai Economy, we are able to further contribute to the UAE’s efforts in building a knowledge-based economy through various awareness campaigns that will contribute to educating the public, as well as small and medium enterprises.”
