Abstract:

The U.S. Government has several international financing and assistance programs which can advance our strategic economic interests outside the U.S. by increasing our economic competitiveness. Chief among these programs are the U.S. Agency for International Development AID, the Export-Import Bank Eximbank, the Commodity Credit Corporation CCC, the Overseas Private Investment Corporation OPIC, and the Trade and Development Program TDP. Each one of these agencies supports a particular national policy and contributes to our overall national strategy. I will be concentrating on the Eximbank since it is the single most important financing institution supporting our capital goods and services exports. Of these agencies, Eximbank is also the only one without a primary interest in assisting developing countries, though by its very nature, it is heavily involved with this area as well. I will be examining Eximbank - why we have one, the programs and services it offers, related foreign government competition and how Eximbank performs financially. I will also Eximbank and offer policy recommendations.
