It was judged that surrogate operation is a suitable industry for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

Kakao and Tmap, which have already entered the market, have no choice but to prevent other large companies from entering the market for the time being.

Use the phone or the app to call the surrogate driver.

Small businesses are mostly phone calls.

However, when platform giants such as Kakao and Tmap went beyond apps and took over phone call companies, small and medium-sized companies protested that it was an infringement of the alleyway.

After one year of discussion, the Shared Growth Committee has designated proxy operation as a suitable business for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

For the next three years, it was recommended to restrict new entry by large companies, and to refrain from promoting cash-based promotions to users and agents who have already entered the market.

However, small and medium-sized companies objected, saying it was a favorable decision for large companies.

It's not that big companies aren't blocking the way to reach their phone-calling customers.

Our market is not going to protect it.

A win-win strategy is a good bastard.]

The reaction of the deputy knights is different.

They argued that small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) were not as good as large enterprises.

Nothing else is bullying.

(Small businesses) deduct 1,000 won a day whether they go to work or not.]

Kakao and Tmap announced that they would follow the decision of the companion committee, but further discussion seems inevitable as small and medium-sized businesses are protesting.
