California Exports Are Booming

By Marc Lifsher, LATimes. com

California’s exports are booming, and companies are shipping goods at levels not reached since before the Great Recession six years ago.

In November alone, Golden State businesses shipped merchandise worth $15.2 billion, a 14% jump over the same month in 2012, new government statistics show. That’s more than twice the rate chalked up for U.S. exports nationally, up 5.9% year over year for November.

Mexico was California’s biggest single export market at $6.25 billion in September, October and November, followed by Canada at $5.21 billion, China at $4.08 billion, Japan at $3.34 billion and Hong Kong at $2.32 billion.
