Ex-Im guide to gaining Medium and Long Term Financing
10/29/2010
Summary:

Lenders often will not provide medium- and long-term financing to buyers in emerging markets. The political and commercial environments in many foreign markets translate into high risk for many lenders. Moreover, credit from in-country lenders is often unavailable or prohibitively expensive to buyers. Thus, without financing, a U.S. exporter will not be able to make the sale. Ex-Im Bank's medium- and long-term financing support fills this void and enables U.S. exporters to compete with confidence worldwide.
