“The Export-Import Bank of the United States (EXIM) is delighted to honor World Trade Week, and we pledge to help the Biden-Harris Administration build a better America by carrying out our important mission of supporting American jobs, prosperity, and economic security through exporting. We also echo President Biden’s call for a trade agenda that raises the quality of life of American families and strengthens our economy and our workforce by investing in our country and our people.

In his proclamation honoring World Trade Week, President Biden highlighted the important work happening at EXIM that will help small and medium-sized enterprises compete globally. EXIM recently passed the Make More in America Initiative, a new financing tool that will help revitalize American manufacturing, improve the resiliency of our supply chains, and level the playing field for American companies competing overseas. Ultimately, it will help us make more in America and export more from America.”

Throughout this week and in the months ahead, EXIM will be featuring information about Make More in America across the agency’s digital platforms. The newly designed also has export tools and resources available for businesses of all sizes that are looking for new markets, competing for sales or are otherwise engaged in global trade.
