DIGITAL TRADE EXPORT ACTIVITY

DIGITAL TRADE EXPORT ACTIVITY A new report from the Internet Association (IA), a trade group that speaks for many web-based leaders, shows Florida is a national leader in a state-by-state tally of jobs supported by digital service exports. According to the IA, the U.S. Economic Statistics Administration defines digital service exports “as services that can be delivered almost instantaneously online at a relatively small cost.” On a national basis, the report shows U.S.-based companies produce some 1.5 million digital service exports jobs and over $470 billion in goods a year, in multiple sectors of the economy. Florida is fourth nationwide, behind California, Texas and New York, and ahead of Washington State, in producing 74,000 digital trade jobs. Also, digital trade and digital trade-enabled businesses in Florida contribute more than $21 billion in exports annually.
