KUHF Conversations: U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk

Last week saw two major developments in international trade. The Korea-US Free Trade Agreement went into effect, and the Obama Administration launched a WTO case against China over Beijing's export restrictions on rare earth metals. KUHF Business Reporter Andrew Schneider sat down with U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk to discuss both following Kirk's speech to the Greater Houston Partnership.

Ambassador Ron Kirk has served as U.S. Trade Representative since March 2009. Before taking office, the Austin native served two terms as the first African-American mayor of Dallas.
