A new report says Kansas could see about 7,000 new jobs if the U.S. and the European Union reach a free trade agreement.
The report estimates Kansas' exports to the E.U. would increase by 23.4 percent if a comprehensive agreement is reached.
Matt Keith with the Kansas Department of Commerce says Kansas had $1.8 billion worth of exports to the European Union in 2012.
That makes the E.U. countries Kansas' second-largest export destination, behind Canada.
