Measures in place to deal with illicit trade warns Trade and Industry Minister

Minister of Trade and Industry, Paula Gopee-Scoon, says several measures have been taken to address illicit trade which results in the loss of tax revenue, undermines legitimate local businesses and exposes consumers to potential health risk from substandard products.

Responding to a question posed to by the Opposition on the issue in the Senate this afternoon, Minister Gopee-Scoon said there will increased surveillance of retail operations, seize illegal products and restrict the importation of illegal commodities.

Minister Gopee Scoon said another move to tackle the challenge is partnership with the private sector.
