BSA Renews Call for Approval of US-Korea FTA

Agreement will reduce software piracy, create US jobs


Washington, DC — September 22, 2011 —

The Business Software Alliance (BSA) today renewed its long-standing call for the United States to approve and properly implement the US-Korea Free Trade Agreement, known as the KORUS FTA.

“BSA strongly supports approving the KORUS FTA as soon as possible,” said BSA President and CEO Robert Holleyman. “Korea is an important strategic partner, and this agreement is essential to America’s economic well-being and global competitiveness. It will help boost US exports, create jobs, and spur growth. I urge all parties to work together to push it over the finish line.”

Holleyman testified in support of the KORUS FTA on April 7 before the House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Trade.
