South Korea’s first arrival duty-free shop will be set up at Incheon Int’l Airport next year
in a bid to reduce discomfort experienced by tourists... And to boost domestic consumption.
As an initial step,... the nation’s first arrival duty-free shop will be set up at Incheon International Airport before June next year,
and gradually be expanded to other airports in the country.
The latest measures come after President Moon Jae-in ordered a review of the plan,
saying tourists currently have to carry around items they purchase before departure,
for the duration of the trip,... due to the lack of duty-free shops at arrival halls.
Small and medium-sized duty-free operators,they have welcomed the move,
as the government said only smaller firms will be allowed to take part in the bidding process.
