A Busy Autumn for Korea-U.S. Relations

This fall, the airports in Washington and Seoul have been full of government officials shuttling back and forth between the two capitals. News in the U.S. and Korea has been dominated by stories about the new Korean Ambassador to the United States, Korea-U.S. relations, increasing Korean FDI, economic ties, regional security, and the Korea-U.S. Free Trade Agreement (KORUS FTA).

Beginning in August, trade representatives from both countries met to discuss KORUS FTA amendment negotiations. In Washington on October 4, Korean officials agreed to beginning amendment negotiations to the free trade agreement. In November, President Trump made an extended visit to Asia with a State Visit to Korea that included a Joint Press Conference with President Moon, an address to the National Assembly, and visits to U.S. military bases.
