Earlier this week, Panjiva released data showing that the number of global manufacturers serving the U.S. market increased for a third month in a row.  This three-in-a-row increase is the first we’ve seen since we began tracking this metric in July 2007 — certainly an encouraging sign.  However, in an absolute sense, we’re still seeing a low level of trade activity, and global trade remains vulnerable to additional shocks.  Here’s a sampling of the press coverage of Panjiva’s latest analysis:

Panjiva in the Wall Street Journal — Global Trade Data

The Wall Street Journal: “‘America led the global economy into a downturn; now, a sustained increase in the number of global companies serving the U.S. market suggests that America may be leading us out of the downturn,’ said Panjiva CEO Josh Green. ‘That said, anyone hoping for a quick recovery to pre-crisis levels of global trade is likely to be disappointed.’”

BusinessWeek: “‘Increasingly, it feels that the worst is behind us,’ says Josh Green, chief executive officer of the trade-tracking firm. Waxing cautious, however, he adds ‘Still, we have a long way to get back to the pre-crisis level of global trade.’”
