A Message from Laban Konsyumer Inc.
We share our thanksgiving for the year and best wishes for 2020.
OUR advocacy received a tremendous boost from all of you as we shared information and education to all consumers on their rights and responsibilities on varied subject matters.
This year LKI received its recognition as a Consumer Organization from the Department of Trade and Industry and remains a full term Member of the Consumers International .
The latest BSP survey hit the bullseye. Consumer confidence went down and item 1 listed is High Commodity prices .
Whether agricultural or non –
agricultural products the year witnessed increases in prices across all products .
LKI had initiated specific legal action on major fronts , such as the legality of collecting VAT on Excise taxes, opposed and intervened in the imposition of safeguard duty on cement before the Court of Tax Appeals, filed a complaint affidavit of price fixing and collusion against oil companies with the Philippine Competition Commission, filed with the Energy Regulatory Commission a petition to make public the 3 year maintainance schedule of generation plants and clamored for lower Feed in Tariff Allowance .
FOR Inaction and delays of regulatory agencies , LKI had sought assistance with the Anti Red Tape Authority.
We achieved so much more .
Our website at www.labankonsyumer.com
contains an archive of information on consumer rights and responsibilities.
MARAMING SALAMAT .
