MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin exports reached an all-time high in 2014, up 1.4 percent from the previous year.

Gov. Scott Walker announced the latest figures on Thursday. He says Wisconsin businesses exported nearly $23.5 billion in good worldwide last year, up by more than 18 percent from four years ago.

Walker’s office released the numbers while he is in London for a trade mission.

Walker says the export growth was fueled by an increase in shipments to Canada and Mexico. Those are the two largest export destinations for Wisconsin products.

Exports to Mexico increased 12.7 percent while Canadian exports were up 5.5 percent.
