With the recently passed Free Trade Agreement with Korea, the timing of an April trade visit to South Korea was ideal. Nebraska was the first state to travel to Korea since the implementation of the Free Trade Agreement.
Steve Nelson, Nebraska Farm Bureau President, explains here how the passage of the FTA has affected tariffs on our U.S. commodities in Korea.
We also had the opportunity to ask Steve what his overall assessment of Korean acceptance was for U.S. products.
To round out our interview with Steve, we wanted to know what the U.S. is doing to overcome some of the obstacles to consumer acceptance in Korea and how he views his responsibility as a farmer to not only feed his neighbors but the world.
