Minnesota Governor Tim Walz announced that the state’s exports reached a record high of $27 billion in 2022, a 16 percent increase from 2021. North American markets drove Minnesota’s export growth to nearly $12 billion. Minnesota conducted $70 billion in total trade in goods with 215 countries last year with nearly $43 billion in imports. Walz stated “Over 200 countries look to the state’s workforce to put food on the table, and this is another data point that demonstrates Minnesota’s diversity of economy, strength of the workforce, and influence in the global economy.”
