Aug 10 -- The Export-Import Bank of the United States (EXIM), invites the general public and other Federal Agencies to comment by October 10, 2023 on the proposed extension of the Annual Competitiveness Report Survey of Exporters and Lenders. As required by Export-Import Bank Act of 1945 (see section 8A(a)(1) of EXIM's charter), EXIM will survey U.S. exporters and commercial lending institutions to understand their experience with EXIM “meeting financial competition from other countries whose exporters compete with United States exporters.” EXIM plans to survey exporters and lenders that have engaged with EXIM on medium- and long-term support over the previous calendar year or responded to at least one of EXIM's last two surveys. The potential respondents will be sent an electronic invitation to participate in the online survey.
The proposed survey will ask participants about their potential or completed deals involving EXIM, their opinion of EXIM's policies and procedures, their interaction and perceptions of other export credit agencies, and impacts of overall market conditions on their businesses.
The information requested is required by the Export-Import Bank Act of 1945, as amended, 12 U.S.C. 635g–1 (see section 8A(a)(1) of EXIM's charter) and enables EXIM to evaluate and assess its competitiveness with the programs and activities of official export credit agencies and to report on the Bank's status in this regard.
