MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation says Wisconsin is on pace to set a record for state exports this year.

Through the first three quarters of 2012, Wisconsin businesses exported $17.4 billion worth of products.

Lora Klenke, vice president of International Development with WEDC, says if exports continue to grow at this pace during the final quarter, they would total $23.5 billion. That would break last year's record of $22 billion.

Wisconsin exports during the first three quarters of 2012 grew faster than total U.S. exports. Wisconsin exported 6.4 percent more in the first three quarters of 2012 than in 2011, compared with 5 percent growth for the United States during the same period.

The top three markets for Wisconsin exports from January through September 2012 were Canada, Mexico and China.
