Abstract

This paper examines the implications of the CKF, Korea’s potential free trade agreement (FTA) with China. It documents Korea’s previous FTA negotiation experiences and the lessons it has learnt since its first agreement was signed with Chile in February 2003. Pivotal to this discussion, is the role domestic politics, so-called ‘loser groups’, and previously hard fought FTAs play in shaping the nature of FTA outcomes. The paper also details the growing importance of China and Korea’s economic relationship, the positive and negative impacts a free trade deal would likely have on both countries as well as the geopolitical implications of any potential CKF agreement. The negotiation strategies currently employed in the CKF are also documented and two tentative scenarios (the hard bargaining game and the dramatic conclusion of the CKF) are hypothesized as possible outcomes to future talks.
