During a special lecture, President Han-Gill Park of the KDSA argued that the direct selling industry can compete against platform businesses that are growing with the 4th industrial revolution. President Park presented a roadmap for advancing the direct selling industry during his term, such as establishing a system at the association level that can support the overseas expansion of direct selling companies and building an overseas direct selling market database in connection with the WFDSA.
President Park stated that he will “share the experience and expertise he gained at Atomy, which has grown into the most successful direct selling company in the last 10 years, with member companies” and urged companies to “work together to help grow the direct selling industry into one that distributes high quality products from small but powerful companies into the world”. /email@example.com
