Help monitor price of controlled goods

Consumers shopping for their Chinese New Year goodies must be aware of attempts by unscrupulous traders to jack up the prices.

Deputy Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Tan Lian Hoe reminded traders to comply with the scheme until Feb 17 and urged the public to help monitor the price of controlled goods.

“For the scheme to be effective, they must become the Government's eyes and ears.

“I'm satisfied traders here have adhered to the maximum price set,”

Under the scheme, traders must display prices of controlled items using pink price tags.
