000044207 520__ $$aThe purpose of this paper is to seek a breakthrough for the Korea-EU FTA negotiation in
agriculture which started last year, but has not made much progress yet. The EU has been asking
Korea to open its agricultural market to the same extent that was agreed upon in Korea’s free trade
agreement with the U.S. while the Korean government firmly opposes the EU’s request, saying that
FTA negotiations differ from multilateral trade talks as in the WTO. An examination of agricultural
trade among Korea, the EU, and the U.S. shows that there may be many niche markets of which the
EU can take advantage over other agricultural exporting countries including the U.S. Also, it is
expected that the EU could gain much from its agricultural trade with Korea through an FTA, even
without a market access level equal to one stipulated in the Korea-U.S. FTA accord. As far as
agriculture is concerned, the slower does the talk proceed, the better to Korea, with the EU losing
huge expected trade gains. It is suggested that the EU needs to be more flexible in the talks by
focusing on a new strategy that can maximize trade diversion effects stemming not only from price
but from non-price factors, rather than simply asking for the same level of market opening as in
Korea-U.S. FTA. This would be the better way for the EU to become a winner in the battle for Korean
agricultural market.
