ST. PAUL — It’s a record third-quarter for Minnesota exports, which rose to $5 billion.

Exports of Minnesota products rose 1 percent in the quarter, despite concerns over a weak global economy.

Minnesota Trade Office acting executive director Ed Dieter said the strong showing bodes well for the state’s manufacturers who were able to forge ahead in “significant headwinds.”
