Companies in Berlin, Germany; Shanghai, China; Melbourne, Australia, and Delhi, India have long enjoyed the full support of their export credit agencies, which have helped them reach new markets, grow, prosper, and increase employment in their respective countries.
Today, exporters in Berlin, Connecticut; Shanghai, West Virginia; Melbourne, Florida; Delhi, New York; and thousands of other cities and towns in the United States can finally say that they have the full support of their own export credit agency. This morning the U.S. Senate voted overwhelmingly to confirm Kimberly Reed as President of EXIM, and Spencer Bachus III and Judith DelZoppo Pryor, as Members of the agency’s Board of Directors. With the confirmation of these officials, EXIM now has a board quorum, and is now able to approve financings larger than USD 10 million and longer than 7 years, something it has not been able to do since 2015.
