In partnership with the East-West Center and the CHEY Institute for Advanced Studies, KEI launched a new edition of Korea Matters for America / America Matters for Korea, a premier resource for data and analysis on the relationship between the United States and Korea relating to diplomacy, security, trade and investment, education and cultural exchanges.
Launched by the East-West Center in September 2011, the Korea Matters for America/America Matters for Korea project is a comprehensive and multi-activity effort to demonstrate and track South Korea’s importance to the United States, and the United States’ importance to South Korea.
This project maps the trade, investment, employment, business, diplomacy, security, education, tourism, and people-to-people connections between the United States and South Korea at the national, state, and local levels. A part of the Asia Matters for America initiative, this publication and the AsiaMattersforAmeria.org website are resources for understanding the robust and dynamic US-Korea relationship.
The Korea Matters for America/America Matters for Korea project entails two distinct ways to examine the US-Korea relationship. These include a full national level publication and state level one pagers that explore the relationship on a more local level.
