BBC News - US Congress votes through South Korea trade dealUS lawmakers have approved a long-delayed free trade agreement with South Korea, calling it the most significant in 16 years.
Both houses of Congress voted in quick succession on Wednesday to approve the agreement, as well as pacts with Panama and Colombia.
It will now go to President Barack Obama to be signed into law.
The agreement is expected to increase US exports to the Asian economy by as much as $10bn (£6.5bn).
The free-trade deal with South Korea is the largest US trade pact since it signed the North American Free Trade Agreement in 1994.
"The agreement is expected to increase US exports to the Asian economy by as much as $10bn" This sounds like a good thing to me. What do you think?
