On September 9, 2020, EXIM announced the members of the EXIM 2020-2021 Advisory Committee, which is comprised of 17 members representing diverse sectors of the economy and chaired by the Honorable Stevan Pearce, and the newly-established Chairman’s Council on China Competition.
“The EXIM Advisory Committee, by law, plays a very important role in advising our agency on our policies and programs, especially on the extent to which EXIM provides competitive financing to support U.S. jobs through exports. My fellow Board Members and I look forward to welcoming and engaging with the new Advisory Committee Members during tomorrow’s public meeting. The Advisory Committee’s insights and recommendations are key to ensuring we are doing all we can to support American workers and businesses as they compete globally, while protecting the American taxpayer,” said EXIM President and Chairman Kimberly A. Reed.
In addition to posting this announcement on EXIM’s website, the agency published a notice to the Federal Register on September 25, 2020, providing notice of the meeting and inviting public participation.
EXIM is an independent federal agency that promotes and supports American jobs by providing competitive and necessary export credit to support sales of U.S. goods and services to international buyers. A robust EXIM can level the global playing field for U.S. exporters when they compete against foreign companies that receive support from their governments. EXIM also contributes to U.S. economic growth by helping to create and sustain hundreds of thousands of jobs in exporting businesses and their supply chains across the United States. In recent years, approximately 90 percent of the total number of the agency’s authorizations has directly supported small businesses. Since 1992, EXIM has generated more than $9 billion for the U.S. Treasury for repayment of U.S. debt.
