Although there has been some increase in the number of exporting establishments in the province, the gains have not been significant or sustained. There were 941 Nova Scotia business establishments participating in international merchandise trade in 2015, up from 930 establishments in the baseline year of 2012. Currently, this indicator is not on track to meet the target.

What this means
This means that a slightly greater number of Nova Scotia businesses have looked to foreign markets to sell their products. However, it is not clear if this is representative of a longer-term trend, as the data has fluctuated only slightly over the available time period, without a clear direction.
