The previous highs for state exports occurred in 2021 and 2008, and both topped out at $12.5 billion. The pent-up demand due to the ongoing global pandemic, the higher prices for products, and trading partners’ fiscal and monetary policy actions are likely to be the significant contributing factors behind the growth.
