Utah is the golden child of U.S. exports. Earlier this month, Matt Schroeder of the Dept. of Workforce Services posted a blog detailing Utah’s remarkable record re: international trade. On average, Utah has contributed about $5 billion in trade surplus each year over the last five years. 

“Utah contributed more to improving the trade balance in the three years leading up to 2014 than did any other state except Washington,” Matt writes.
