US-Korea Free Trade Agreement/Global Food Security
Last month President ObamaÂ said theÂ US-South Korean free trade agreement will create jobs in the U.S. and benefit American workers. The trade deal passed Congress, but faces surprising opposition in South Korea. Â Today on “All Sides,” South Koreaâ€™s Ambassador to the U.S.Â discusses what the pact means for Ohioâ€™s economy.
- Han Duk-soo (South Korean Ambassador to the United States)
One in seven people in the world goes to bed hungry every night. Not because there isn’t enough food, but because they donâ€™t have access to resources like fertile land and water. On this segment of “All Sides,” weÂ talkÂ about meeting the challenges of global food security.
