Since 2011, exports have increased $9.9 billion. Today, Palmetto State exports reach nearly 200 countries and terrorites, with 33 new markets added in 2018 as a result of the department's South Carolina Export Incentives Program, a progam designed to assist small- to medium-sized companies in reaching foreign markets.
“We’ve cultivated a globally-connected economy in South Carolina, and last year’s export sales total reflects that,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt says in a statement. “Moving forward, we will continue to prioritize the growth of our international trade footprint and will encourage companies of all sizes to expand their reach into new markets overseas.”
South Carolina's top four trading partners include nations the Trump administration has recently waged, or threatens to wage, trade wars against: China, Canada, Germany, and Mexico. The People's Republic accounts for 16% of SC exports, while both the Great White North and Deutschland make up 11%; our South of the Border neighbors are responsible for 8% of exports.
