The Florida Chamber has provided us with some interesting news bytes about the importance of growing Florida’s role in international trade:
Bloomberg: Mexico’s growth will slow, and Brazil’s growth will increase at a slower rate than predicted
- Miami Herald: Florida real estate transactions by foreign nationals increased 3.8%, with Canada leading the pack, and China entering the group.
- Global Trade Magazine: Export values from the 174 Free Trade Zones (FTZ) operating in the U.S. increased 147.9% from 2009 to 2012.
- The Economist:“The pace of global growth increased during the second quarter of 2013 – only the third quarterly acceleration in three years. But the world is dangerously dependent on China, which continues to grow at a clip. Since the beginning of 2010 it alone has contributed over one-third of global GDP growth, with another 40 percent coming from the rest of the emerging world.”
