TOPEKA, Kansas (AP) - A new study finds that international trade supports about 371,000 Kansas jobs.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the Business Roundtable conducted the study. The group is made up of the CEOs of America's 200 largest companies and has advocated for free-trade agreements with Panama, Colombia and South Korea.
The report estimated Kansas exported about $12.2 billion worth of goods in 2012. About $5.4 billion of the goods were sold to countries with which the United States has free-trade agreements.
Only about 19,800 of the Kansas jobs tied to trade in 2011 were in the manufacturing sector. Most - about 68,600 - were in consumer services.
Steve Kelly of the Kansas Department of Commerce says additional free-trade agreements could make it easier for Kansans to sell overseas.
