According to Hurriyet Daily News, the Turkish Ministry of Commerce has warned shopkeepers in the country’s resorts about the responsibility for the lack of price tags on goods.
The agency sent a letter to trade organizations, which contains a requirement to indicate the prices of goods in Turkish lira, so as not to mislead tourists. The ministry believes that “this is unfair to tourists and causes distrust in Turkey as a whole as a tourist destination.”
According to the Turkish Consumer Protection Law, retail price tags are mandatory. In addition, all goods produced in Turkey must also be labeled as “domestic products”.
