Export-Import Bank Names Global Chamber® in New Alliance Program

by Doug Bruhnke

Global Chamber® is pleased to be part of the new Association Alliance Program created by the Export-Import Bank of the United States (EXIM Bank) and just announced to help exporters grow. The program offers key EXIM Bank stakeholders a menu of training and education opportunities that allows their members to participate in EXIM Bank events, roundtable discussions, webinars and training sessions. Members of Global Chamber may now more freely access EXIM Bank regional directors and benefit from special networking opportunities.

“Through the Association Alliance Program, EXIM Bank will continue to educate and grow our network of key industry stakeholders,” says Charles J. Hall, acting chairman and president of Export-Import Bank of the United States.

Global Chamber has already been collaborating with EXIM Bank; this official program will give members more access to these important programs that help them grow.

EXIM Bank is an independent federal agency that supports U.S. jobs by filling gaps in private export financing at no cost to American taxpayers. The bank provides a variety of financing mechanisms, including working capital guarantees and export credit insurance, to promote the sale of U.S. goods and services abroad. Almost 90 percent of its transactions directly serve American small businesses. In fiscal year 2016, EXIM approved $5 billion in total authorizations to support an estimated $8 billion in U.S. export sales, and, since 2009, EXIM has supported more than 1.4 million American jobs and sent $3.8 billion of surplus to the U.S. Treasury for deficit reduction.
