Korea Economic Institute of America Presents:

Thinking Outside the Box: How Can U.S. Service Providers Benefit from the KORUS FTA?

Read Event Description

Event Date

November 9th 12:00pm - 12:00am EST

Event Description

While beef and autos have gotten most of the press, the service sector is a key component to the KORUS FTA. In the United States, the services industry accounts for 80 percent of U.S. employment and 75 percent of U.S. economic output. Services often provide the tools that allow the producers of goods to ship their products, ensure on time delivery, insure their products against loss, and market them to consumers at home and abroad. Please join KEI for a discussion of the non-traditional barriers that U.S. service providers face and how the KORUS FTA would help them to better compete in the Korean market.
