U.S. Exports Reach $190.4 Billion in February
 
Ex-Im Bank Continues to Support U.S. Jobs by Financing U.S. Exports
Washington, D.C. – The United States exported $190.4 billion of goods and services in February 2014, according to data released today by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) of the U.S. Commerce Department.
“The world continues to choose products stamped ‘Made in America,’ as February’s trade numbers show,” said Export-Import Bank Chairman and President Fred P. Hochberg. “Ex-Im Bank’s support of U.S. exporters has helped them seal deals abroad and support vital jobs here at home, all the while generating billions of dollars for taxpayers.”

Exports of goods and services over the last twelve months totaled $2.3 trillion, which is 44.5 percent above the level of exports in 2009, and have been growing at an annualized rate of 9.2 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 (23.6 percent), Russia (19.6 percent), Peru (19.4 percent), Hong Kong (18.9 percent), Colombia (17.9 percent), United Arab Emirates (17.1 percent), Argentina (16.4 percent), Chile (16.3 percent), Ecuador (15.2 percent), and Indonesia (15.0 percent).

ABOUT EX-IM BANK:
Ex-Im Bank is an independent federal agency that creates and maintains U.S. jobs by filling gaps in private export financing at no cost to American taxpayers. The Bank provides a variety of financing mechanisms, including working-capital guarantees, export-credit insurance and financing to help foreign buyers purchase U.S. goods and services. In the past fiscal year alone, Ex-Im Bank earned for U.S. taxpayers more than $1 billion above the cost of operations.

In FY 2013, Ex-Im Bank approved more than $27 billion in total authorizations to support an estimated $37.4 billion in U.S. export sales and approximately 205,000 American jobs in communities across the country. For the year, the Bank approved a record 3,413 transactions-- or 89 percent--for small-businesses.
