“E-commerce market was worth over $88.7 billion (100 trillion KRW) in 2018. Percentage of mobile e-commerce is over 60% as Smartphones have become generalized and as 5G mobile network has been established.” said Chairman Kim. “Current E-Commerce Act that is limited to the past PC generation cannot deal with current markets.”
