About the US-Korea FTA
The United States and the Republic of Korea have historically partnered in efforts toward political and economic stability since 1882. This relationship developed further with the Korean War over sixty years ago, and continues to impact the economic strength of both the United States and the Republic of Korea.
The United States – Republic of Korea Free Trade Agreement is the largest free trade agreement entered by the US in more than 15 years. With the passage of this agreement, the US projects a surplus in exports and the creation of over 280,000 jobs.
