The questions and answers covered a variety of trade topics including the pending U.S. trade agreement with Korea. Ambassador Kirk and the fellows also discussed the value of education and how it will lead to more American innovation. That innovation will help the U.S. create the goods and services that the rest of the world wants to buy, which will increase our exports and support well-paying jobs here at home, the Ambassador said.
