Senator David Perdue: Korea Trade Updates Will Benefit Americans

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) comments on improvements to the United States-Republic of Korea Free Trade Agreement (KORUS):

“In just eight short months, President Trump was able to deliver on his promise to make our trade agreements work for the American people. The updates to the Korea Free Trade Agreement will benefit the American worker and our economy. Of equal importance, this deal will help us uphold one of our strongest alliances in the world and ensure a future of prosperity for the United States and South Korea. I have just met with the South Korean Prime Minister, Lee Nak-yeon, in Seoul and we discussed how this agreement will enhance our relationship and help level the playing field.”
