Gov. Nixon announces record export numbers for Missouri in 2011

Gov. Jay Nixon today announced that the $14.1 billion in Missouri exports in 2011 is a new state record, topping the last state record set in 2007.

“Selling more Missouri-made goods overseas means more jobs here at home,” Gov. Nixon said. “I applaud the incredible work of Missouri businesses, farmers and workers for their successful efforts to increase Missouri exports to this record level.”
