With both Governor Gary Herbert and President Barack Obama calling for a doubling of exports in the next five years, it is especially significant that Utah was the only state where exports doubled in the past five years. In 2010 Utah shipped $13.57 billion in merchandise exports to international markets. According to the U.S. International Trade Administration and U.S. Bureau of the Census, direct export supported jobs linked to manufacturing in Utah account for an estimated 93,000 jobs for Utah families.
