Marcus Hiles, a noticeable and distinguished business and real estate development leader thinks about the state’s excellent record of bringing companies in. He says, “Companies are moving quickly to the state of Texas to use our stable workforce and business-friendly standards.” Also, financial investors from outside are entering the state, using more than a half million people resources. In the year 2015, exports were an aggregate of $251 billion, with a 93 percent increase in exports from the prior decade with free trade agreement partners. Texas’ most vital trading partner is Mexico. This is followed by Canada, China, Korea, and Brazil. The exports in the state were – $45.4 billion worth of computers and devices, $44.1 billion in oil and coal products, and $39.9 billion in chemicals. When compared to California, which lost more than 1,500 businesses recently, Marcus Hiles sees that Texas’ system of development and advancement is the driving force for companies placing assets into Texas, the increase of jobs and exports.
