U.S.-Korea Economic Relations Under New Management


The winner of the Korean presidential election on May 9 will assume office only a few months after President Donald Trump’s inauguration. With new leaders in the U.S. and Korea come new opportunities and issues to be worked through. The incoming president in Korea will be faced with mounting economic problems at home and will also need to address trade concerns raised by President Trump. While political transitions in both countries have a resulted in a degree of uncertainty for now, what should we expect in the economic relationship moving forward?

KEI cordially invites you to join us for a panel of distinguished experts to discuss the influence of the leadership transitions in the U.S. and Korea on bilateral economic ties, as well as implications for regional economic integration.
