Trade

Expanding access to emerging markets is crucial for creating opportunities for U.S. manufacturers and service providers to sell more American-made goods and services around the world.

As the global market place has grown, few states have benefited as much as Arizona from global trade. Exports from Arizona’s strong computer and electronics manufacturing sector, as well as transportation related equipment, help drive economic growth.
