Lotte Duty Free has invited foreign youths with disabilities on a tour around Seoul to experience traditional and modern culture here. About 20 disabled people from Korea, Japan, and China participated in the cultural exchange program, co-organized by Disabled People’s International (DPI) Korea. Under the event designed to promote “barrier-free” tourism, attendees went to Lotte Duty Free Family Concert, an annual music festival, and visited major tourist attractions in Seoul. After the city tour, the company held a meeting with the participants to discuss ways to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. Lotte Duty Free plans to carry out disability-friendly projects and expand facilities for people with special needs at tourist spots. Meanwhile, the company has been striving to fulfil its corporate social responsibility by conducting various projects to contribute to society. Apart from helping the disabled, Lotte Duty Free has been donating household goods to hospitals and schools as well as sponsoring a cultural foundation.
