Cuepacs to rope in its 1.4 million members to join SP1M

Cuepacs will rope in its 1.4 million members to join the Skuad Pengguna 1Malaysia (SP1M) to make the voice of the consumers even louder.

If all Cuepacs members could join the squad, there would be a bigger group in the country with a louder voice to protect consumers' interests and rights, Cuepacs president Datuk Omar Osman said.

“It is only when consumers join forces that we can expect the traders and service providers treat us with respect,” he said after the presentation of SP1M cards to Cuepacs members from the Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Selangor here yesterday.

The cards were presented by Deputy Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Rohani Abdul Karim.

Omar said so far, about 10,000 Cuepacs members had joined the squad since it launching in March last year.

Rohani said having stronger consumerism bodies was important as Malaysia march towards becoming a developed nation in 2020.

“In several developed countries, the consumers are the market forces and they dictate what is best for them,” she said.
