Congressman Joe Wilson Praises Updated KORUS Free Trade Agreement


Date: Sept. 24, 2018

Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) released the following statement praising the new US-Korea Free Trade Agreement that was signed today by President Donald Trump:

"I am grateful for the jobs created in South Carolina by South Korean investments as a result of fair trade. Last year, Samsung announced a $380 million dollar project in South Carolina, which will create 1,000 jobs. In addition, South Korea was the seventh largest receiver of exports from South Carolina in 2017. This updated trade agreement supports the U.S. auto industry and reduces burdensome regulations on exports to South Korea. I look forward to the continued expansion of this mutually beneficial relationship."
