EXIM’s historic seven-year reauthorization (P.L. 116-94), signed into law December 20, 2019, directs EXIM to establish a new “Program on China and Transformational Exports” (see Sec. 402). The Program’s purpose is to support the extension of loans, guarantees, and insurance, at rates and on terms and other conditions, to the extent practicable, that are fully competitive with rates, terms, and other conditions established by the People’s Republic of China or by other covered countries (as designated by the Secretary of the Treasury). The law charges EXIM with a goal of reserving not less than 20 percent of the agency’s total financing authority (i.e., $27 billion out of a total of $135 billion) for support made pursuant to the program, with a focus on specific industries.

In order to better understand the needs of these important stakeholder communities, EXIM will host a series of teleconference calls with industry representatives and EXIM senior staff throughout May and June 2020.
