Event Description:
Join World Trade Center - Kansas City and the MU College of Arts & Science for "South Korea: A Free-Trade Success Story" by Associate Professor Vanya Krieckhaus, of MU's Department of Political Science.
Free-trade is arguably an important foundation for long-run economic success, and South Korea exemplifies a free-trade success model. More recently, South Korea led the world by being the first to sign free trade agreements (FTAs) with all three centers of the global economy: the United States, the European Union, and China. This talk explores these South Korean successes. One thread throughout the presentation is how U.S. containment policy, and the U.S. presence in Asian geopolitics more generally, influenced South Korean economic history and the Korean FTA strategy.
Admission is free. Doors open at 6:00 p.m., and the presentation will begin at 6:30 p.m. A reception will follow at 7:30 p.m.
