Port Louis- Maurice (PANA) -- Mauritian Trade and Protection of Consumers Minister, Motee Ramdass Tuesday in Port-Louis launched a national awareness campaign on the rights of consumers as part of activities for the celebration of the International Consumers Day.

"The watchword this year, is sensitisation and information," Ramdass said at the launch, adding that campaign posters and brochures were being distributed throughout the country.
