Why South Korea?
U.S. exports to Korea totaled $44.5 billion in 2014, making up 8.6 percent of all Korean imports. Korea is the United States’ seventh-largest export market.
The Korea-U.S. Free Trade Agreement (KORUS FTA), which entered into effect in 2012, is the United States’ largest free trade agreement since NAFTA. With 80 percent of U.S. industrial goods exported to the country tariff-free, American officials expect exports to expand to $52-52 billion annually within the next several years.
