Statement by James S. Turley, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Ernst & Young, and Member of the President's Export Council, on the United States - Korea Free Trade Agreement

NEW YORK, Dec. 3, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- "For the United States, this trade agreement will yield exports, and those exports will yield jobs.  Such negotiated agreements are key to competitiveness in what is clearly a global marketplace.  The United States has been a party to fewer than twenty of the hundreds of bilateral and regional trade agreements that exist around the world today. That has to change, and this agreement is a critical part of a move in the right direction.  I applaud the Administration for coming to this agreement with South Korea and urge Congress to approve it promptly."
