The Export-Import Bank, the United States, and Globalization

Please join us for a discussion on the Export-Import Bank's contribution to the U.S. economy, future directions and challenges, and ways the U.S. Congress continues to support the bank. Since 2009, the Export-Import Bank has helped create 1.2 million private-sector jobs by financing small business exporters. Over the last five years, it has generated $2 billion more than the cost of its operations. However, the bank is currently operating on a short term extension of its charter which expires on June 30, 2015. Given the forthcoming deadline, a conversation on the role the bank plays in growing American jobs and its contribution to the global economy is needed to spur further support from the U.S. government.
