In late June, NI-CO was delighted to welcome 6 senior delegates from Algeria who were visiting Belfast as part of a UK study mission designed to explore best practice in consumer protection. The visit was organised by NI-CO as part of our EU financed Institutional Twinning project which we have been delivering in Algiers since 2017. During their trip, senior managers from the Algerian Ministry of Commerce were kindly hosted by practitioners from Trading Standards within the Department for Economy, the Consumer Council, Food Standards Agency, Port Health, Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs and Consumer Safety NI who shared real life cases of current consumer complaints, stakeholder management issues and threats to consumer safety. During the meetings the group were encouraged to reflect upon current practices within Algeria and to discuss how the various models employed by Northern Ireland might be adapted to meet the evolving needs of the consumer protection sector in Algeria.
