Importers in Kuwait asked to mention country of origin

KUWAIT, April 25 (KUNA) — Kuwait’s Ministry of Commerce and Industry issued a circular for importers of commodities asking them to mention the country of origin clearly on imported commodities.

The new directive is based on the Cabinet Decree 27 (2015) relating to consumer protection, the Ministry said in a press release on Friday.
It obliges the importers to cite the country of origin, instead of just the continent of that country; otherwise, they could face a legal action.
