WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Deb Fischer (R-Neb.) today met with South Korea’s Trade Minister Kim Hyun-chong. After the meeting, Senator Fischer released the following statement:

“It was good to visit with Minister Kim Hyun-chong today and discuss the strong strategic alliance between our two countries. The main focus area during our meeting was the U.S.-South Korea Free Trade Agreement (KORUS FTA). I have been a staunch advocate for this agreement because of the great economic benefits it provides to Nebraska’s families. I will continue to work with Minister Kim, my colleagues in Congress, and the administration to promote trade opportunities for Nebraska producers.”

Earlier this month, Senator Fischer penned a letter to President Donald Trump urging him not to terminate KORUS FTA. Click here to read the letter.

South Korea is Nebraska's sixth largest agriculture trade partner and a major market for Nebraska pork, corn, ethanol, beef, and wheat. The total Nebraska trade market in South Korea is worth $400 million.
