Texas Is NO. 1 Exporting State For 20 Years In A Row
11 Feb 2022
AUSTIN — Texas leads the nation as No. 1 exporting state for the 20th year in a row, accounting for more exports than California, New York and Louisiana combined, according to Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), U.S. Department of Commerce, figures released this week.
“Twenty years is a long time to hold onto the top spot in U.S. trade and exports. But Texas has maintained its position through steady and robust economic growth,” said Robert Allen, President and CEO of the Texas Economic Development Corporation. “This growth is the result of good decisions by elected leaders on the state as well as community level as well as a strategic partnership between the state and its regional economic development partners to maintain the conditions in Texas in which businesses can best grow and thrive.”
