The new Korea-U.S. Free Trade Agreement is our nation's largest FTA since NAFTA. The agreement has the potential to increase U.S. exports to Korea by approximately USD 10-12 billion, especially benefitting SMEs. In 2009, nearly 18,000 SMEs exported some USD 8.4 billion worth of merchandise to Korea. Total 2011 U.S.-Korea trade exceeded USD 100 billion for the first time ever. Korea registered GDP growth rate of 6.7 percent in 2011 and is predicted to do the same for 2012.

Join the U.S. Commercial Service for an informative webinar that will highlight opportunities for U.S. companies in the growing Korean market and the impact the recent FTA will have on the dynamic trade relationship.
