South Korean ambassador visits Port of Tacoma Aug. 31

Join a roundtable discussion with Ambassador Han Duk-Soo of South Korea Aug. 31 to talk about the Korean Free Trade Agreement. If approved by Congress, the Korean agreement would be the first U.S. free trade agreement with a major Asian economy and the largest trade deal since the 1993 North American Free Trade Agreement. The U.S. International Trade Commission estimates that the trade agreement’s reduction of Korean tariffs and tariff-rate quotas on goods would add $10 billion to $12 billion to annual U.S. Gross Domestic Product and about $10 billion to annual merchandise exports to Korea. The ambassador’s visit is organized by the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber, U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Korean Women’s Association. The discussion is from 1:15 to 2:30 p.m. Aug. 31 at the Korean Women’s Association International Place at 1702 E. 44th St. in Tacoma. Reserve your seat by Aug. 30.
