The Ministry of Economy and Commerce, the Ministry of Interior and the Ministry of Municipality and Environment, has carried out surprise inspection campaign targeting street vendors in Al Corniche.

The Ministry aims through the campaign to monitor the compliance of suppliers with their obligations under Law No. 5 of 2015 on industrial commercial shops, public stores and street vendors, as well as their commitment to Ministerial Decision No. 243 of 2016 on Licenses and regulations for street vendors. The inspection resulted in uncovering a number of violations and penalising street vendors for conducting business activities without obtaining a commercial licence.
