Exports of services from New York to Canada and Mexico in 2015 totaled $9.5 billion — an increase of some 68 percent since 2006 — according to an economic analysis of NAFTA-related data at the national and state level released Aug. 16 by the Business Roundtable, an association of CEOs of America’s leading companies. The state exported some $12 billion in goods to NAFTA partners in 2015, down 7 percent from the 2006 figure. In its study and in an Aug. 16 press release promoting the benefits of NAFTA, the Business Roundtable reports that some 836,600 New Yorkers were employed in jobs related to trade with NAFTA partners in 2014 (the latest year for which data were available).
