Exports were sharply higher to Mexico, Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana and Taiwan. Exports to Angola disappeared, and exports were sharply lower to the Netherlands, Netherland Antilles, Maldives and the Gambia. Exports to the Netherlands in 2012 were unusually high due to a ban on battery cages that went into effect on January 1, 2012.
