    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Exports of goods from Virginia to more than 230 destinations around the globe increased about 6 percent in 2014.

    The Virginia Economic Development Partnership says exports rose to $19.2 billion last year, up from $18.1 billion in 2013.

    Manufactured goods accounted for 79 percent of all Virginia merchandise exports in 2014, followed by agricultural exports and mineral fuel. Agricultural exports rose 16 percent to $2.9 billion.

    Virginia's top commodity was industrial machinery, totaling $2.5 billion. Electrical machinery was the second-largest, followed by vehicles and plastics.
