About BRT

Washington – Tom Linebarger, Chairman and CEO of Cummins Inc. and Chair of the Business Roundtable International Engagement Committee, today issued the following statement on negotiations taking place in Seoul on the U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement (KORUS): 

 

“With the U.S. exporting approximately $65 billion in goods and services to South Korea that support 360,000 American jobs, we urge the Trump Administration to focus on strengthening and improving KORUS. In addition, during times of uncertainty on the Korean Peninsula, this agreement is critical to maintaining an important national security relationship with a key ally. In these negotiations, we encourage both governments to address implementation issues under KORUS and market access issues faced by U.S. companies.”
