U.S.-Korea Partnership:  Growing Jobs Across America

The U.S.-Korea Partnership series is a national series of forums highlighting the importance of trade and investment between the United States and Korea, and the benefits and opportunities of the U.S.-Korea Trade Agreement for supporting American jobs and economic growth.

The U.S.-Korea Partnership series was launched in 2010 by the Council and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce TradeRoots program, which are leading this effort in partnership with state and local chambers of commerce and trade associations across the country.  This series is the only one of its kind nationally, and is continuing in 2013.

In 2010, speakers at U.S.-Korea Partnership events included Korean Ambassador to the United States Han Duk-soo and other senior Korean Embassy officials, members of Congress, state governors, mayors, and local business and community leaders.  Local success stories of small and medium-size U.S. enterprises doing business in Korea were also highlighted.  The 2010 U.S.-Korea Parntership series visited 24 cities across 12 states, generating significant local and national-level attention and extensive press coverage.
