  • 1. The state of Minnesota has a rich history of trade and export that continues to thrive today. Did you know that Minnesota's James J. Hill’s Great Northern Railway, which ran from St. Paul, Minnesota to Seattle, Washington, was the first to be built without public money? The expansion of rail beginning in the Minnesota region was a boon to its sale of agricultural products, and a key stimulus for its early industry growth. Minnesota's export future continues to be bright for many sectors such as manufacturing and medical technology. With 14 firms on the Forbes Global 2000 list, Minnesota's international presence facilitates our ability to export and expand our economic reach. $2.209 B $1.723 B $ 825 M total: $4.757 B Soybean + Meal: Corn + Feed / Fodder: Wheat + Grain: 2013 Minnesota Agriculture Exports “Minnesota agriculture exports to China have grown 861% from 2000 to 2014” Canada China Mexico Japan Germany Belgium South Korea Philippines United Kingdom Netherlands $5,757 $2,463 $1,474 $1,068 $760 $721 $624 $552 $528 $521 (in millions) Top Countries Purchasing Minnesota Exports1 1 2 1 Tom Haag / President of Minnesota Corn Growers Association / Star Tribune / 08.25.13 NAHSR Copyright ©2014-2015 North American High Speed Rail Group LLC.
