What is the Ex-Im Bank?
The Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im Bank) is the official export credit agency of the United States. The Ex-Im Bank helps U.S. companies sell the products they make at home to buyers overseas. Congress must vote to continue the Ex-Im Bank’s charter before its expiration date on June 30, 2015 so that U.S. companies can continue exporting and growing with confidence.
The Impact of Ex-Im Bank
- The Ex-Im Bank supports thousands of jobs across hundreds of congressional districts.
- In FY 2013, Ex-Im loan guarantees and insurance supported 205,000 U.S. jobs at thousands of U.S. companies.
- The Ex-Im Bank is critical to U.S. competitiveness and helps to level the playing field for U.S. exporters.
- The Ex-Im Bank ensures U.S. businesses can compete in a fierce global market.
- Without the Ex-Im Bank, manufacturers and their suppliers will be at a disadvantage when competing for sales overseas.
