Introducing "Export Finance Solutions": A Tool for U.S. Exporters
November 05, 2014 Jim Burrows, SVP of Small Business, Export Import Bank of the U.S.

As the U.S. and global economy rebounds from the 2008 recession, U.S. businesses are presented with ever increasing opportunities to sell their products overseas. When it comes to exporting, like everything else in business, there is a learning curve.

How do you find trustworthy partners abroad? What rules and regulations do you need to know? How does export finance work?

A successful business solves these problems by finding an experienced partner to guide them. When it comes to understanding how export finance works, we want “Export Finance Solutions” to be your experienced partner.

The articles and posts you find here will be targeted to raise awareness of the trade finance tools available to U.S. businesses already exporting and those wishing to start their export journey.

Through these pages we hope to provide a new resource for business leaders who are unfamiliar with how they can expand their business abroad. Our goal is to provide plain language explanations on how to solve common export problems—primarily those related to export finance. We intend to make this a trusted platform that business decision makers who are only vaguely familiar with export finance concepts can use as a point of reference for their export needs.

This conversation is by no means a one way street. We excitedly invite you to take part in and interact with the posts as they come out. If you have a question, want us to cover a particular topic, or think we missed the point please let us know through your comments below.

The Export-Import Bank of the United States looks forward to addressing all of your export needs.
