S. Korea, Canada to Discuss Feasibility of FTA

South Korea and Canada will hold their second round of meetings in Ottawa, Canada, between March 31 and April 1 to study the feasibility of a free trade agreement (FTA), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MOFAT) said Tuesday.

The meeting is expected to expand on issues dealt with at the first round of talks held in Seoul in late January.

Areas that will be covered include the scope of trade and topics of particular interest.

Both countries agreed last year to kick off FTA talks within this year based on the results of some feasibility studies.
