Take Advantage of the New Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with Korea and Increase Your Sales!
The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) and the U.S. Commercial Service invite you to join us on May 23 at 4:00 p.m. EDT for a one-hour webinar featuring trade experts from NAM and the U.S. Department of Commerce who will give you tips on how to take advantage of the U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement.
The U.S. International Trade Commission estimates that the reduction of Korean tariffs and tariff-rate quotas on goods alone will add $10 billion to $12 billion to annual U.S. Gross Domestic Product and around $10 billion to annual merchandise exports to Korea.
Under the FTA, almost 80 percent of U.S. exports to Korea of consumer and industrial products are duty free and nearly 95 percent of bilateral trade in consumer and industrial products will become duty free within five years of that date. Most remaining tariffs would be eliminated within 10 years.
Learn how to take advantage of the new FTA with Korea, the world’s 12th largest economy with 49 million consumers with a per capita GDP of $31,754.
