The Future of U.S.-Korea Economic Relations Five Years after the U.S.-Korea FTA

 

With the inauguration of the Donald Trump as president of the United States, U.S. policy towards international trade and views of the currency policies of trading partners have begun to shift. Under the new administration, there is a greater emphasis on trade deficits, U.S. manufacturing exports, well-paying domestic jobs, and foreign direct investment. As the U.S.-Korea (KORUS) FTA approaches its fifth anniversary, and South Korea prepares for its own presidential transition, what are the future prospects for U.S.-Korea economic relations? What new areas of opportunity and challenge exist for each administration?

Please join KEI and KIEP for a discussion of the future of U.S.-Korea economic relations and look back at five years of economic relations under the KORUS FTA.
