SUMMARY OF MINUTES OF MEETING OF BOARD OF DIRECTORS
DECEMBER 22, 2020

ITEM NO. 1
Credit Risk Appetite - Linkage to the Budget Cost Level. Recommendation for the implementation of a Long-term High Risk BCL (LTHR) Policy pursuant to which a certain high risk BCL rating would be the starting point for the Country Risk and Economic Analysis Division (CREA) to identify and recommend the markets to remain open for a modest amount of long-term (LT) business instead of the current cover policy of closing automatically. An additional recommendation was to expand the availability of the Short-term Africa Risk (STAR) Policy to all markets and thus create the Short-term Only Risk (STOR) policy.
Board Decision: APPROVED. Chairman Reed, Director Bachus and Director Pryor all voted in favor of the Recommendation.

ITEM NO. 2
Approval of the Minutes of the December 16, 2020 Board Meeting
Board Decision: APPROVED. Chairman Reed, Director Bachus and Director Pryor all voted in favor of the minutes.

ITEM NO. 3
Approval of the Minutes of the December 10, 2020 Board Meeting
Board Decision: APPROVED. Chairman Reed, Director Bachus and Director Pryor all voted in favor of the minutes.
