Marcus Hiles is considered one of the most discernable business and real estate development heads in the Lone Star state, which is why he always updates about the track record of Texas in getting more companies to come into the state. “Our business-oriented regulations and strong workforce simply urge companies to relocate to Texas,” he claims. The state even draws in foreign investors, which give over 500,000 more jobs. Not only the exports increase significantly because of this but also the productivity as well. In 2015, exports have a value of $251 billion, and the growth of exports with free trade agreement partners have increased by 93 percent. The state’s exports include chemicals which is worth $39.99 billion, computers and electronics totalling to 45.4 billion dollars, and products made from oil and coal priced at $44.1 billion. The state is in trading partnership with Mexico, Canada, China, Korea, and Brazil. Hiles added that, Texas always primes its pro-growth stand as a way to attain growing exports, higher number of jobs, more companies year after year.
