Vermont's gross domestic product grew 3.16% last year, fueled mainly by a pickup in manufacturing.
The state saw its exports rise 33% last year, as demand from its biggest customer -- Canada -- grew after slumping during the recession.
Vermont's largest exports are electronic parts, including computer processors and video game accessories.
