The International Trade Administration said Tuesday that Wisconsin's merchandise exports increased 5 percent in 2012 compared to 2011, growing from $22.1 billion to $23.1 billion.

That's a new high for the state, it said.

Wisconsin's key merchandise export categories include: machinery, computer and electronic products, transportation equipment, food and chemicals.

Key growing markets last year were Singapore, India, Japan, Australia and Belgium.

"These export numbers show that for more and more Wisconsin companies, selling internationally is key to growing their businesses and strengthening their bottom line," Francisco Sánchez, U.S. Commerce Under Secretary for International Trade, said in a news release.

Exports of U.S. goods and services reached $2.2 trillion in 2012 and supported nearly 10 million American jobs.
