The TC Chamber of Industry which commissioned the LIPA Consultancy Company to carry out the survey held a press conference to brief on the results. Around 1,002 people took part in the survey. Those who took part were pleased on the whole of the products they purchased but added that inspection and controls were not at the level required.
Respondents said they expected mechanisms to be developed to support producers, protect local products, increase inspections and share the results of those inspections with the public.
53.3% of those who took part in the survey said they looked to see if the products were locally produced or not whilst 13.1% said they did not notice at all. 91.3% said they were open to using locally produced products.
On quality 56.4% said they trusted local products whilst 15.1% said they did not trust them at all.
