*How Ex-Im Bank Can Assist US exporters to boost up their international sales:

Risk Protection - US exporters shipping on open account terms instead of requiring cash in advance or costly & complicated L/Cs may obtain export credit insurance from Ex-Im Bank mitigating non-payment risks ( commercial & political ) of their foreign buyers or prospects. Additionally, foreign account receivables insured by Ed-Im may be used to increase an exporter's borrowing base with a lender , thereby accelerated cash flow.

Working Capital - Ex-Im Bank can help US exporters obtain loans to fulfill export orders from a lender. An Ex-Im Bank guarantee turns exporter's inventories and foreign account receivables into eligible collateral from the lender.

Term Financing - Foreign buyers may obtain competitive financing ( with extended repayment terms ) to buy US made capital goods and services.

Additional export counseling services will also be available from U.S. Commercial Service staff during the show at the International Business Center (room location TBD). There is no fee to participate.  Please contact or for more information.
