HIGH Shopping will leverage the technological and managerial competencies of the companies in INTOUCH Group along with the professional experience of Hyundai Home Shopping so both businesses will grow in the same direction,” MR. SOMPRASONG said.

MR. KANG CHAN-SUK, CEO – Hyundai Home Shopping Network Corporation, said: “Hyundai Home Shopping is regarded as a successful world-class South Korean company, and is expanding into international markets such as China and Vietnam. The home shopping market in Thailand is growing rapidly and extensively, and INTOUCH Group has the professionalism and technology to encourage growth, e.g. satellite TV platform, mobile device network, and high-speed internet broadband. This is the reason for a trust-based partnership with INTOUCH and we are sure this new business will achieve its goals. HIGH Shopping plans to begin advertising its products in the fourth quarter of this year through various sales channels, providing service excellence by modern technology. It is certainly a new dimension of home shopping in Thailand.”
