Export-Import Bank Financing Support Helps Create American Jobs
Washington, D.C. – The United States exported $193.3 billion of goods and services in April 2014, according to data released today by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) of the U.S. Commerce Department.
“The numbers show that the world’s consumers want U.S. goods and services for their quality and reliability,” said Export-Import Bank Chairman and President Fred P. Hochberg. “Made in America is still the best in the world, and the Ex-Im Bank is proud to play its part in boosting U.S. exporters abroad and supporting jobs here at home.”
Exports of goods and services over the last twelve months totaled $2.3 trillion, which is 45.1 percent above the level of exports in 2009, and have been growing at an annualized rate of 9.0 percent when compared to 2009.
During the same time period among the major export markets (i.e., markets with at least $6 billion in annual imports of U.S. goods), the countries with the largest annualized increase in U.S. goods purchases, when compared to 2009, were Panama (22.7 percent), Russia (18.9 percent), Peru (18.5 percent), Hong Kong (17.9 percent), Colombia (17.6 percent), Argentina (16.4 percent), Ecuador (16.1 percent), Chile (15.5 percent), Indonesia (14.6 percent) and China (14.5 percent).
