Washington State set new record for exports in 2014

The U.S. Department of Commerce announced twenty -six states achieved record export levels including Washington state which reached $90.6 billion in merchandise exports last year. This is a new record for the state.

Secretary Pritzker praised today’s announcement stressing the fact exports are critical to economic growth and job creation in communities across the country. “With 95 percent of the world’s consumers living outside the United States, opening more markets to ‘Made in America’ goods and services is fundamental to our nation’s competitiveness, job creation, and the economic security of our families,” she said.
