All 50 States Export to ASEAN, Supporting Over Half a Million Jobs in the US

Almost 42,000 companies across the US export to ASEAN. These goods and services exports support almost 550,000 jobs, directly or indirectly, according to 2015 estimates. Eighteen states have more than 10,000 jobs that rely on exports to ASEAN member states.

In per capita terms, trade with the 10 member states of ASEAN creates the most jobs for Washington, followed by Oregon, Vermont, North Dakota, and Delaware. Employment from trade to ASEAN creates over a quarter of a million jobs in California, Texas, Washington, New York, and Illinois alone.
