In 2011, Utah's exports to China totaled $4.3 billion, the U.S. Census and World Trade Center Utah reported. That is a lot of money when you consider the state has only about 3 million people. It is about $1,535 per Utahn. Utah's exports to all countries around the world equals $18.9 billion.
So while some political voices are pushing Chinese business away, Utah is showing how a different attitude can pay huge dividends for building a state's economy. Deseret News
