Three FTAs, Four Experts
October 21, 2011
The FTAs & the Future of American Trade Policy
October 18, 2011 – Korea Economic Institute hosted a panel, introduced by Troy Stangarone, Korea Economic Institute, and moderated by Judge Morris, The Global Business Dialouge, discussing the recent passage of the three FTAs (Korea, Panama, Columbia).
Six days after the long pending free trade agreements with Korea, Colombia, and Panama sailed through the House and Senate, KEI and the Global Business Dialogue co-hosted an event discussing how those those involved in trade need to wrestle with the lessons-learned question "What happened?" and the even more urgent one "What next?".
In addition to these two broad topics, the panel also conversed on the implications of votes for the WTO, TPP, and the future of U.S. Trade Policy.
The members of the panel were:
- "Obama to Sign FTA Bills Friday" – Washington Trade Daily
- "USTR Official Outlines Entry Into Force of KORUS" – The Bureau of National Affairs, Inc.
- "United States Ratifies Free Trade Agreement With South Korea" – Butzel Long
- "커틀러 "한미 FTA 가능한 한 신속히 발효" – 연합
- "연합 뉴스 이시각 헤드라인" – 연합
