Naver To Make Korean Olympics More Foreigner-Friendly

The Winter Olympics will be held in South Korea in 2018

With the 2018 Winter Olympic Games due to be held in South Korea, the country is trying to increase services for foreign visitors. After Brazil announced a similar initiative using Google Maps for the 2016 summer games, South Korea will use local services such as Naver Maps to help foreign-language visitors. Hoping to provide useful services to the expected 50,000 people at the games, and 5 million tourists around the country at that time, it is also hoped that the Pyeongchang Games could assist Naver's global expansion. Naver also said that it would employ foreign students in Korea, to make sure the services were suitable for people visiting the country.
