Does the KORUS FTA benefit U.S. manufacturers? This is perhaps the single greatest unanswered question about the KORUS FTA. Since negotiations concluded in early 2007, there has been a wide ranging discussion of how the agreement impacts the U.S. automotive sector, but very little focus on whether the agreement benefits U.S. manufacturing or is a detriment to its prospects in Korea. In this session, the panelists will discuss what the current state of play is for U.S. manufacturers exporting to Korea, what challenges they face, and how the KORUS FTA will impact their business in Korea.

RSVP for this program is required. Please e-mail RSVP to Sarah Howe, KEI's Associate Director for Programs, at: sh@keia.org.
