“Asia`s rich markets are Canada`s next frontier in our drive to eliminate tariffs and non-tariff barriers to trade and investment. Canada`s free trade agreement with South Korea will be the first step in gaining much more open access to Canadian exports. This agreement is expected to make Canada an even more attractive objective for investors and manufacturers, create jobs and opportunities for Canadians, and improve the competitive environment for Canadian businesses to make them more competitive on the world stage. Following the entry into force of the Canada-Korea Free Trade Agreement, Canada will provide South Korea with immediate duty-free access to 50.7% of agricultural duty lines. 36.3% of additional tariffs on agricultural tariff headings will be eliminated within five years. .
