Dear Rutgers Korean Graduate Students Association Members,

The Korea Society invites members of Rutgers Korean Graduate Students Association to our upcoming program, "Examining the South Korea-China Trade Pact" with Jeffrey J. Schott on Thursday November 12 at 12:00 PM at The Korea Society (950 Third Avenue, 8th Fl, NYC). 

South Korea signed a free trade agreement with China, its largest trading partner, this summer. The ROK-PRC free trade agreement promises to eliminate tariffs on 90% of traded goods, open China for new Korean business and investment, and boost trade to over $300 billion. Jeff Schott, senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington, DC, speaks to the agreement, a qualitative step-up for China, and the positioning of the agreement relative to the U.S.-led Trans-Pacific Partnership and other initiatives.

Jeffrey J. Schott joined the Peterson Institute for International Economics in 1983 and is a senior fellow working on international trade policy and economic sanctions. During his tenure at the Institute, Schott was a lecturer at Princeton University (1994) and an adjunct professor at Georgetown University (1986–88). He was a senior associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace (1982–83) and an official of the US Treasury Department (1974–82) in international trade and energy policy. During the Tokyo Round of multilateral trade negotiations, he was a member of the US delegation that negotiated the GATT Subsidies Code. He is a member of the Advisory Committee on International Economic Policy of the US Department of State.

Schott is the author and coauthor of several books on trade, including Understanding the Trans-Pacific Partnership (2012), NAFTA and Climate Change (2011), NAFTA Revisited: Achievements and Challenges (2005), Free Trade Agreements: US Strategies and Priorities (2004), Free Trade between Korea and the United States? (2001), as well as numerous articles on US trade policy and the GATT.

Registration and light fare will be on offer starting at 11:30 AM, and we would kindly request you to arrive by 12:00 PM to be seated. Please let us know if you would like to attend by emailing us at policy@koreasociety.org.

The Korea Society is happy to offer a discounted price of $5 for students. Please register by writing to 'policy@koreasociety.org' with your name and Rutgers Korean Graduate Students Association as your affiliation to reserve your seats. 

Thank you, and we hope you can join us! 

Sincerely,

Anna Tokareva
