 Missouri’s Exports $800 Million Ahead of Last Year’s Record Pace

Good news from the Missouri Dept. of Economic Development!

News like this is good for real estate sales because it increases jobs and keeps the economy humming.  Below are excerpts from their press release.

Missouri exports through the third quarter of 2005 are more than $800 million ahead of the record $9 billion in global sales set in 2004, the Missouri Department of Economic Development reported last week.  Through the end of September, Missouri exports totaled $7.5 billion compared to $6.7 billion after the third quarter of 2004, a nearly 12 percent increase.

"We are encouraged by the state’s direction when it comes to exporting Missouri goods across the globe," said Greg Steinhoff, director of the Missouri Department of Economic Development. "The growth in exports has a direct impact on employment and on our economic development efforts and we will continue to promote our workers and products to an ever expandaing global marketplace."

Nine of Missouri’s top ten export product categories increased global sales in the third quarter of 2005, including agricultural products (up 76.4 percent), machinery (up 22.2 percent), electrical equipment (up 20.5 percent), fabricated metal products (up 20.4 percent), food products (up 18.7 percent), primary metal manufacturing (up 18.1 percent), transportation equipment (up 10.5 percent), plastics and rubber products (up 8.7 percent), and chemicals (up 0.3 percent). The minerals and ores product category is the state’s fastest growing export with an increase of 283.5 percent. The only top product area with a decrease was computers and electronics at -6.3 percent.

Missouri export data for 2004, the most recent available, shows that Canada was Missouri’s top trading partner with $4 billion worth of exports. Mexico was second with $946 million in exports while Japan was third in 2004 with $434 million. The Missouri export data was compiled from the World Institute for Strategic Economic Research.
