Yuki Fujiyama is a trade finance specialist with the Office of Financial Services Industries in the International Trade Administration under the U. S. Department of Commerce. In this capacity, he works with commercial financial institutions where he helps to increase access to working capital, trade credits and financing for U.S. exporters, especially small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), and their foreign buyers. In addition, Yuki serves as a member of the U.S. Department of Commerce liaison team to the U.S. Export-Import Bank (Ex-Im Bank) and analyzes annually over 100 Ex-Im Bank financing proposals that support approximately $41 billion in U.S. export sales in markets or terms deemed too risky for commercial lenders to consider.

Mr. Fujiyama is the author of the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Trade Finance Guide: A Quick Reference for U.S. Exporters—a concise and easy-to-understand guide designed to help U.S. exporters, especially SMEs, quickly learn how to get paid from export sales.

Both Rep. Brown and Yuki received a presidential signing pen used to enact H.R. 1151 from President Bill Clinton.
