Texas Named Number One Exporting State

Published on February 10, 2014 by Larry Crippen

Texas has again been ranked the number one exporting state in the nation by the U.S. Census Bureau, making it the 12th consecutive year Texas has held this position. The state’s export revenues for 2013 amounted to nearly $279.7 billion, up 5.4 percent from the previous year and outpacing U.S. export growth.

This ranking continues a decade-long trend of recognition for Texas’ global economic presence. Global Trade Magazine recently named Texas as the top state for global trade, noting the state’s commitment to low regulatory burdens and wealth of global enterprises. The Lone Star State has also recently been named best business climate by Business Facilities Magazine, most competitive state by Site Selection Magazine, and best state for business for nine years in a row by Chief Executive Magazine.
