You don’t have to look hard to find the benefits of exporting.
They’re in your neighborhood, where your neighbor is finding a new manufacturing job with a company expanding in the United States.
They’re downtown, where another small business is adding jobs to keep up with new sales in overseas markets.
They’re in your department store, where quality products have a made-in-USA label, and they’re built by American companies who are innovating their production techniques to be more competitive in the global marketplace.
The numbers show that 17 states had record exports in the first half of 2013, building on a trend of U.S. export records. More important than those numbers are the millions of American jobs supported by exports in manufacturing and other sectors.
