Idaho isn’t limited by its borders.

We’ve long looked outside of the U.S. to find markets for goods and services produced in our state and our export volumes continue to grow. Since 2003, Idaho exports grew from $2 billion to $3.4 billion in 2020. Idaho companies are selling goods and services to 156 countries around the world, all the while supporting jobs in Idaho.
