US-KOREA FREE TRADE AGREEMENT - 12/07/2010
Micromeritics Instrument Corp. welcomed U.S. and Korean efforts to move forward on the U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement (FTA) and urged the White House to send the deal to Congress for approval as quickly as possible.
The U.S.-Korea FTA will make it easier for Micromeritics and other U.S. manufacturers to export American-made products to Korea by eliminating trade barriers and reducing tariffs, which will increase employment opportunities for U.S. workers and enable Micromeritics to meet foreign competition from around the globe.
Micromeritics, which specializes in manufacturing automated materials characterization analyzers, has been exporting its products to Korea for more than 30 years. Recipient of the President’s “E” Award for Export Excellence, Micromeritics strongly supports the U.S.-Korea FTA for the broad range of benefits it brings to the company and to the U.S. economy.
