Doing Business in Korea Business Breakfast Seminar

United States-Korea Free Trade Agreement (KORUS) entered into force on March 15, 2012. On the day of implementation, almost 80 percent of U.S. industrial goods exports to Korea became duty-free, including aerospace equipment, agricultural equipment, auto parts, building products, chemicals, consumer goods, electrical equipment, environmental goods, travel goods, paper products, scientific equipment and shipping and transportation equipment. Other benefits of the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) include:

  • Nearly two-thirds of U.S. agricultural exports products are duty-free including wheat, corn, soybeans for crushing, whey for feed use, hides and skins, cotton, cherries, pistachios, almonds, orange juice, grape juice and wine.
  • Stronger protection and enforcement of intellectual property rights in Korea.
  • Increased access to Korea’s $580 billion services market for highly competitive American companies.
