Mountain Home AFB and Singapore

I'm sure most people in the area know by now the Singapore Air Force is coming to Mountain Home Air Force Base. But what you might not know is how much trade and commerce is conducted between Idaho and the country of Singapore. I looked up some general facts and this is just one set of statistics I found.

Exports from Idaho to Singapore by Year – Computer and Electronics

Exports from Idaho to Singapore - Computers and Electronics


The Raw Numbers

  2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007
Computers & Electronic $165,169,000 $192,976,000 $361,176,000 $226,145,000 $459,052,000 $1,052,506,000

It appears as if Singapore likes the computer and electronics produced in Idaho. As you can see, 2007 was a great trading year for Idaho. This is good new for both Idaho and Singapore.
