U.S. exports outpace U.S. imports

U.S. exports outpace U.S. imports
Exports grew by 8.9 percent on average annually from 2000 to 2013 while imports increased by 8.1 percent. Rising global demand, primarily in developing country markets, along with the dollar's competitive exchange rate helped U.S. exports grow faster than imports on average in the past decade. These trends widened the U.S. agricultural trade surplus to $37.1 billion in 2013. Population growth, ethnic diversity, changing taste preferences, and high incomes are behind U.S. food import demand.
