Interesting that Peoria is this large in exports.  Shows the importance of international trade.

Very impressive. 

The importance of Europe to Illinois can be seen by the $11.2 billion in exports to Europe in 2007.

According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, Peoria ranks 20th of all metropolitan cities exporting to Europe, putting it in league with New York, San Francisco and Chicago.
