WCIT Washington State Trade Dashboard

The Washington Council on International Trade provides its Washington state trade dashboard to provide a comprehensive view of the state’s international trade data – showing its impact on the economy and jobs and helping see trends develop.  The dashboard covers quarterly data on:

  • The volume of international trade by Congressional district
  • Top exports
  • Volume at all of the Washington State Ports
  • Top countries for imports and exports
  • The number of jobs related to international trade
  • The total imports and exports
  • And more.

This provides insights into opportunities for growth and the impact of international trade on the state’s economy.

The WCIT Trade Dashboard is a valuable resource for businesses, policymakers, and stakeholders who are interested in tracking the state’s international trade activities. Additionally, businesses and job seekers interested in Washington state trade jobs can use this data to identify thriving industries and potential areas for job growth.

The dashboard also provides information on the top countries for imports and exports to and from Washington State. This information can help businesses to identify new markets for their products and services as well as understand the competitive landscape and help policymakers as they weigh policy proposals.

WCIT Q4 2022 Trade Dashboard

Here are some highlights from the Washington state trade data for Q4 2022. 


  • Goods exports rebounded in Q4 2022, jumping 30% compared to relatively low Q3 2022 volumes. The increase was driven primarily by strong agricultural and food exports.
  • Throughout 2022, Washington state exports continued to recover from pandemic lows and finished the year narrowly ahead of 2019 totals.
  • In fact, Q4 2022 was the strongest quarter for state exports since Q1 2019—before COVID-19 and the fallout from protracted trade disputes with China and other trading partners.


  • Washington state goods imports have risen steadily since reaching a pandemic low in early 2020.
  • Despite a dip in Q4 2022 imports (-10% compared to the previous quarter), annual goods imports reached record levels in 2022, totaling $74.4 billion.
  • However, declining goods imports throughout Q4 2022 raise the possibility that this post-pandemic growth trend may slow, or even reverse, in early 2023.
