1. is there:'will put up' after 'it was reported' because it is still up-to-date?
2. could it be also be according to the tense sequence:
It was reported that Hyundai Motor Co. would put up a car-assembly plant ?
3. put up=establish?
4. forged a free trade agreement= create/false/continue? a free trade agreement?

thanks
1. please explain: a free trade agreement?
2. so why can't we write: 'would put up' instead of 'will put up' according to tense sequence after:'It was reported'?

many thanks again

1) A free trade agreement is a pact between two countries or areas in which they both agree to lift most or all tariffs, quotas, special fees and taxes, and other barriers to trade between the entities.
The purpose of free trade agreements is to allow faster and more business between the two countries/areas, which should benefit both.

2) We can, but the author chose to use a different vocabulary choice.
