Nixon: Exports increased from 2011 to 2012
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- State officials say exports by Missouri businesses rose by 6 percent in the first half of the year compared with the same period in 2011.
Gov. Jay Nixon said Wednesday that revenue from exports to other countries totaled $7.5 billion from January through June, putting them on pace to hit nearly $15 billion for the year. Last year, Missouri businesses sold $14.1 billion worth of goods abroad.
Canada, Mexico and China are Missouri's leading export markets.
Nixon's office says the state's top exports include vehicles, industrial equipment and electronic machinery.
