The United States exported $195.5 billion of goods and services in May 2014, according to data released today by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) of the U.S. Commerce Department.

"The numbers show that the world's consumers continue to value U.S. goods and services for their quality and reliability," said Export-Import Bank Chairman and President Fred P. Hochberg. "Given a level playing field, U.S. exporters can compete with anyone in the world, and Ex-Im Bank is proud to support them abroad as they support jobs here at home."

Exports of goods and services over the last twelve months totaled $2.3 trillion, which is 45.7 percent above the level of exports in 2009, and have been growing at an annualized rate of 8.9 percent when compared to 2009. - See more at: http://www.nigeriansreport.com/2014/07/top-10-countries-with-largest-annual.html#sthash.hHLEmNH5.dpuf
