Looking Ahead to KORUS FTA Ratification

 

Despite an historic delay and continued opposition in some quarters, passage of the Korea-U.S. Free Trade Agreement (KORUS FTA) looks set to proceed quickly through the United States Congress. The road has been a long and difficult one, but for what has become a burgeoning global alliance and a keystone for regional security, allowing the deal to unravel once reached would have been unthinkable. However, with the submission of the pending free trade agreements with Korea, Panama, and Colombia by President Barack Obama to Congress on October 3, the KORUS FTA will likely soon reach the end of its journey.
