AAPC Statement on the United States-Korea Free Trade Agreement



WASHINGTON, D.C. – American Automotive Policy Council President Matt Blunt today issued the following statement on the United States-Korea Free Trade Agreement (KORUS):

“We believe improving U.S. access to the Korean auto market is important in strengthening the competitiveness of the American auto industry.  We continue to have high expectations for KORUS, but realizing those expectations will require addressing Korean technical barriers and currency policy, which are slanting the playing field and holding back our market share.  We encourage the U.S. Administration to work with the Korean Government to address these barriers to open further opportunities for U.S. manufacturing.”
