ROJ-ROK Comfort Women Agreement Stands

The opening of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games has brought the world’s attention to the Republic of Korea(ROK). While the cameras are focused upon athletic events, the attention of the locals is upon how the results of President Moon’s task force for the 2015 Comfort Women Agreement will affect diplomatic relations with the Republic of Japan(ROJ).

The ROJ has been making reparations and attempting to resolve the physical, psychological, and emotional damages made to Korean women during Japan’s imperial control in World War II. Japan issued a heartfelt apology in 1993 by Chief Cabinet Secretary Yohei Kono after reviewing a Japanese case study on “wartime Comfort Women”. On the 50th anniversary of WWII ending, Japan started the Asian Women’s Fund (AWF) to restore the honor and dignity of women that were effected throughout Asia. The fund provided 2 million yen per survivor from contributions by the Japenese people, and over 5 years disbursed 830 million yen for the welfare and medical care of survivors from the Japanese government’s funds. The AWF also started a digital museum so that the world would remember and not repeat their mistakes.

During the implementation and efforts of the Asian Women’s Fund in Korea, there …

The Power of Personalization – How it Can Grow your Retail Store

The biggest advantage a retailer can have over competitors is the ability to get a comprehensive insight into what every customer wants easily. And it’s only through tech can we perk up customer experience. Personalization is one of the best approaches to this. Unfortunately, not many upcoming retailers are adequately equipped to implement it.

Last year survey conducted by BRP Consulting revealed that 55{b4abc0430ad76f282306ff4ca4fe96646897ae443d1174a6991a00ceab5ff2f4} of retailers had improving shopper/customer experience as their top priority. Boosting customer loyalty was number two with 50{b4abc0430ad76f282306ff4ca4fe96646897ae443d1174a6991a00ceab5ff2f4} and augmenting mobile shopping came third with 45{b4abc0430ad76f282306ff4ca4fe96646897ae443d1174a6991a00ceab5ff2f4}. Surprisingly, only 24{b4abc0430ad76f282306ff4ca4fe96646897ae443d1174a6991a00ceab5ff2f4} had introducing personalized promotions as their top priority.

Weird as it may seem, this little focus on personalization is understandable because it requires a firm foundation to start. You need customized, flawless customer experience all through, a perfect consumer loyalty strategy and the aptitude to link with shoppers through their devices of choice like smartphones.

Start by improving your consumer experience and loyalty

Personalization is an old practice that keeps gaining popularity. The more retailers make an effort to establish consumer loyalty & experience programmes they closer they get to customization. It’s a must-have for any business because it helps you stand out from your counterparts.
