A Brookings Institution report ranks Wichita among the top metropolitan areas showing an increase in exports in 2015. The results are part of an effort made by the Kansas Global Trade Services in Wichita.
Wichita’s performance was third best, at 6.8 percent, just behind Bakersfield, Calif., and New Orleans. Twenty-five cents of every dollar of the Wichita economy is from a customer outside of the U.S.
Kansas Global’s Holli Schletzbaum says the nonprofit company meets with people across the state to help them intentionally sell to other countries.
