The positive employment effects attributable to Missouri s exports of manufactured goods to the UAE are the easiest to calculate and the table below summarizes estimated job gains over the 2006 through 2012 period. Direct employment refers to manufacturing jobs at exporters. Indirect employment quantifies the estimated job gains in ancillary sectors such as transportation and input suppliers. Induced employment reflects jobs that are generated by the additional spending of earnings resulting from exports. Most of this spending occurs in sectors, such as restaurants and retail, that are unrelated to the exporting sector. Estimated employment in Top 10 Mfg.
