Abstract

The Trans-Pacific Partnership is designed to create what is often referred to as a 21st century trade agreement and serve as a potential stepping stone to a Free Trade Area of the Asia-Pacific. As Korea begins consultations on joining the Trans-Pacific Partnership, domestic and international trends are likely to weigh high on Korea’s agenda. With economic growth slowing and Korea facing long-term structural challenges such as an aging population, President Park Geun-hye is seeking to increase innovation and spur job creation through the development of a creative economy. At the same time, Korea faces a changing international economic environment as international trade agreements shift from bilateral FTAs to larger regional trade agreements. (The rest omitted)
