On June 18, 2014 BLI’s Kyle K. Choi led a presentation in Seoul on the Korea-U.S. Free Trade Agreement (KORUS FTA) for the Korea International Trade Association (KITA). Mr. Choi provided an overview of the verification rules and process for Korean exporters. KORUS FTA, which entered into force in March 2012, paved the way for the elimination of tariff and non-tariff barriers to trade in goods and services, to promote economic growth, and to enhance trade between the United States and Korea. In the two years of the agreement’s existence, both U.S. and Korean customs officials continue to aggressively pursue exporters during the verification process. Mr. Choi’s seminar provided South Korean exporters with the background information they need to understand the verification process in the U.S., as well as basic steps to successfully prepare and pass a verification review by U.S. officials. Mr. Choi, a native of South Korea, is fluent in both Korean and English, serves clients both in the U.S. and Korea related to trade, finance, and other commercial transactions.
