 Missouri Exports Break Record
By: Darin "Sid" Cameron, CRS

Below are excerpts from a Dept. of Economic Development Press Release.

Exports by Missouri companies increased by $1.5 billion, or 16 percent, in 2005 compared to $9 billion in international sales in 2004, according to the Department of Economic Development.  That means Missouri set a new export record in 2005 of $10.5 billion in sales abroad.

Nine of Missouri’s top ten export product categories increased global sales in 2005, including agricultural products (up 48.8 percent), food products (up 37.2 percent), fabricated metal products (up 28.2 percent), transportation equipment (up 20.6 percent), machinery (up 20.6 percent), electrical equipment (up 20.5 percent), primary metal manufacturing (up 20.4 percent), and chemicals (up 0.8 percent). The minerals and ores product category was the state’s fastest growing export, with sales increasing over 309 percent. The only top product area with a decrease was computers and electronics (down 4.4 percent).

Missouri’s top export recipients are Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, Germany, Italy, Japan Korea, Mexico and the United Kingdom (in alphabetical order). The Missouri export data was compiled from the World Institute for Strategic Economic Research.
