Please join the Korea International Trade Association (KITA), Korea-US.

Over the past 60 years Korea has transformed itself from one of the most impoverished countries in the world to the third largest economy in Asia. Today Korea is Washington State’s fifth largest export market with two-way trade valued at $5.5 billion in 2012. Major Washington state exports to Korea include aircraft, food and agricultural products and electronics, and education.

 

With the highest boadband penetration levels in the world, Korea was ranked as the world's most advanced ICT economy in 2011 by the ICT Development Index.  Information and communications technology is a key sector for both the US and Korea, with US companies exporting $8.3 billion in computer technology and electronics to Korea in 2008. While not tracked nationally, the Korean consumers’ consumption of software and services is also large.
