Kentucky manufacturers are exporting goods at a lightning pace through the first six months of 2013. The governor’s office says exports grew by over 12 ½ percent during that time. That’s the second-fastest pace in the nation, right behind New Hampshire.
Exports to Great Britain saw one of the strongest increases through the first half of the year.
Cars and chemicals are traditionally among the biggest exports for Kentucky as are aircraft engines and parts like those made by General Electric in Madisonville.
