From the Korea Herald:
"I don't want to see tariffs on EU goods reduced before goods on U.S. goods are reduced," Amy Jackson, president of the American Chamber of Commerce in Korea, said at her inaugural press conference in Seoul. The former director of Washington D.C.-based C&M International, an international trade and investment consulting firm, assumed her new post on Aug. 31.
She stressed the importance of the Korea-U.S. FTA for both sides and underscored the urgency for passage of the deal by both legislatures, especially following the initialing of the FTA between Korea and the European Union on Oct. 15. This step paved the way for the official signing of the accord targeted for the first quarter of 2010.
