U.S.-South Korea Trade Pact
C-SPAN Radio’s Nancy Calo read news headlines at the end of the program.
Lori Wallach talked about the U.S.-South Korea trade agreement reached the previous week, and she responded to telephone calls and electronic communications. The deal gives the U.S. five years to phase out a 2.5 percent tariff levied on Korean-built cars. According to the Wall Street Journal, the pact, which still requires legislative approval in both countries, is the largest by value of trade volume anywhere in the world since the NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) took effect in 1994.
