Below is a press release from Georgia U.S. Senator Jon Ossoff.

Washington D.C. – U.S. Senator Jon Ossoff, co-founder of the U.S. Senate Korea Caucus, is continuing his work to strengthen the friendship between the U.S. and the Republic of Korea.

Sen. Ossoff is working across the aisle to pass the bipartisan Partner with Korea Act to encourage greater ties between American and Korean businesses. 

The bill would build on this strong and growing bilateral relationship by encouraging greater ties between American and Korean businesses.

“As the Senate’s number one champion of the US Korea alliance, and a steadfast friend of Georgia’s Korean American community, I’m continuing my bipartisan work to strengthen relations between the U.S. and the Republic of Korea,” Sen. Ossoff said.

Sen. Ossoff remains a leader in the U.S. Senate pursuing stronger relations with South Korea, maintaining frequent contact with senior South Korean diplomatic and economic officials.

Sen. Ossoff led his second economic delegation to Seoul earlier this year to continue pushing for additional Korean investment in Georgia and establishing Georgia as the advanced manufacturing hub in the U.S.

Sen. Ossoff met with South Korean President Yoon Suk-Yeol as well as top South Korean government officials and business executives.

Sen. Ossoff’s first successful economic delegation to South Korea in November 2021 yielded economic results for Georgia families. In 2022 alone, following his trip, Hyundai, Hanwha Qcells, and SK invested over $8 billion in Georgia, creating over 10,000 jobs.
