He said, when looking back at the history of and achievements in the protection of rights and interests of consumers in China over the past 30 years, we could find that the tremendous achievements were largely attributed to the joint efforts and support of the entire society, especially the selfless dedication of numerous persons engaged in rights protection, who had become a vital force for driving the evolvement of consumer protection undertakings. Under such context, CCA, CPB and China Consumer Journal intend to jointly initiate the campaign of Looking for Most Beautiful Activists of Consumer Protection of 2015. The campaign will identify and give publicity to ordinary consumers, public welfare rights activists and ordinary people engaged in rights protection, tell their touching stories, sing highly of their endeavors to drive the course of rights protection, their pursuit of ruling by law and justice, their persistence and boundless love. The event aims to uphold the positive energy for rights protection, motivate the society to participate proactively, gather the force of public oversight and push for shared governance for rights protection, thereby playing a positive role in creating a safe, healthy, civilized, harmonious, fair and legal consumption environment.
Chang Yu further remarked, over the years, consumer associations and SAIC offices at all levels have been working closely with and rely highly on the rights activists from all walks of life to proactively perform their statutory obligations, lay foundations for shared governance for rights protection and create a safe and trustworthy consumption environment. CCA set “Shared Governance to Enjoy Consumption” as the annual theme for 2015, aiming to exert CCA’s bridge-and-bond function, gather all social forces and bring a new pattern to rights protection under shared governance. The campaign will help promote the shared understanding that protection of rights and interests of consumers is a common responsibility of the entire society, and motivate all parties to vigorously participate in the act.
