Region’s China exports are booming

October 18, 2008

Two paragraphs that tie area exports to “The Big Idea” of a US-China air freight hub in St. Louis from one of our area’s best business writers. Bottom line to the story is, “Between 1989 and 2007, Missouri’s exports grew at an annual rate of 32 percent, Illinois’ by 18 percent. U.S. exports to China rose by 15 percent a year during that period.”
