(MNN) The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development is reporting a two-point-two-percent decline in third-quarter exports.
Exports of Minnesota goods were down four percent to Asia and 21 percent to South America and struggled to many of the state's top markets including China, Canada, the U-K and Singapore.
Governor Tim Walz said in a statement, "the President’s trade war continues to create uncertainty for Minnesotans and hurt our economic growth."
Minnesota exports to Mexico were up 49-million dollars, 22 million to Thailand and 16 million dollars to France.
