In The Region:

Last year, Ohio was the ninth largest exporting state, with some 259,000 jobs in the state related to the export business.

During a conference call Tuesday, Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman voiced his support for the re-authorization of the Export-Import Bank of the United States. The bank supports U.S. businesses to help them compete abroad. Coleman says he’s made exports a priority in his city.

“We’re going to continue to focus on the export markets around the globe with the help of the Department of Commerce and Global Connect. We think it helps the quality of life of our residents, it gives people jobs and opportunities and enhances our small and medium sized businesses as well.”

Coleman says some 2,000 companies in the Columbus metropolitan area export goods.

More than 11 million jobs in the U.S. are supported by exports.
