Tennessee exports hit record high

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee's exports increased 1 percent in the first half of the year, setting a new record for the state.

The International Trade Administration says exports were $16 billion, up $300 million from the same period last year.

The biggest export gains were increases of 60 percent to Singapore, 26 percent to the United Arab Emirates, 26 percent to South Korea and 17 percent to the Netherlands.

The Intentional Trade Association's Commercial Service has 100 offices in the United States -- including in Nashville, Knoxville and Memphis -- and in American embassies and consulates in more than 70 countries.
