A quick look at California exports vs the U.S.

Posted by Gino DiCaro, VP, Communications on April 17, 2014

Recently TechAmerica reported that California for the first time lost its status as the top technology exporter in the country, with Texas surpassing us with $45.1 billion in technology exports to our $44.8 billion.  

We thought this would be a good time to look at the trend of our overall exports versus Texas and the rest of the country.  Below is the percentage growth in exports since the country started to emerge from its recession in 2010.  California at 17.4 percent is growing but trending behind the country's 23.3 percent, as well as Texas' 35.2 percent.

Check out the National Association of Manufacturers' video on the comeback of manufacturing and the future it holds for all Americans.

Help NAM and CMTA get out the message by sending the link to your suppliers, friends and family. You can also share on Twitter with #WeAreMFG.

Let’s make sure Americans know what we already know—manufacturing is skilled, cool, clean, united, a family and the future.
