On April 1, the Office of the United States Trade Representative announced that it had concluded a free trade agreement with the Republic of Korea. The treaty’s intent is to “eliminate tariffs, promote economic growth, and strengthen economic ties” between the two countries. The deal, which still requires approval by lawmakers of both countries, represents the United States’ largest agreement since NAFTA, and the largest ever for Korea. A 10-page fact sheet, outlining the terms of the agreement, can be downloaded from the office of the United States Trade Representative by following this link. A shorter summary is here.
