Abstract

This article examines the influence and role of Korean businesses in shaping the ROKUS alliance, studying the case of KORUS free trade agreement (FTA). For more than a half century the ROKUS alliance has played a safety-pin role in preserving peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and in the Northeast Asian region. Based on the common ideology and values, it also has functioned as an important institutional foundation for a strong bilateral economic and commercial relationship that underpinned common security and prosperity. Although the global security and economic conditions fluctuated, the bilateral partnership has been widened and deepened in all dimensions of inter-state relations through the security, economic, and cultural ties.
