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 Q1 2023 Trade Dashboard

Here are some highlights from the Washington state trade data for Q1 2023. 

  • Q1 Exports Dip: WA businesses exported $15.8 billion of goods in Q1—a decrease (-7%) from Q4 but on par with Q1 2022 volumes. The slight dip was driven by a sharp drop (-36%) in agricultural exports, mainly offset by a substantial rise (+23%) in transportation equipment exports.
  • Imports Tick Up: Goods imports totaled $18.3 billion, representing a marginal rise (+3%) over both Q4 and Q1 of 2022, indicating sustained high import levels but slowing growth.
  • Port Volume Falls: WA trade volume totaled $59.5B in Q1. While slightly lower (-4%) than Q1 2022, this was the largest quarterly decrease (-7%) in volume since Q2 2020.
