Benefiting from the Colombia and Korea Free Trade Agreements
The Colombia and Korea Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) entered into force on May 15, 2012. On the day of implementation, over 80% of U.S. industrial goods exported to these countries began duty-free entry.
- Colombia is the fifth largest economy in Latin America with the third largest population. Colombia is the 3rd largest market for U.S. exports in Latin America.
- Korea is the United States' 7th largest trading partner. The U.S.-Korea FTA has the potential to increase U.S. exports to Korea by USD 10-12 billion.
Hear from industry and government experts about market opportunities in these two countries, and how your company can leverage the FTAs to make sales. You will learn how FTAs impact NC businesses, market opportunities, how to take advantage of the FTAs, and the importance and impact of FTAs.A more detailed brochure on the event, including registration information, is here. If you're in the area and are looking to get your business more involved in the international trade game, this is a good place to start.
And I'll be returning to a more normalized blogging schedule in the very near future. (I'm sure you just can't wait!)
Hope to see you in Greensboro.
