Business Roundtable Statement on Reauthorization of the U.S. Export-Import Bank

October 29, 2019

Washington – Business Roundtable today released the following statement regarding reauthorization of the U.S. Export-Import Bank:

“Business Roundtable urges Members of Congress to support the United States Export Finance Agency Act of 2019, which would reauthorize and strengthen the U.S. Export-Import (Ex-Im) Bank, and to reject amendments that would undermine the Bank’s ability to function competitively. Supporting more than 1.7 million American jobs over the past decade, the Ex-Im Bank has been critical to expanding export opportunities for American products and services. Long-term reauthorization of the Ex-Im Bank will help U.S. businesses of all sizes expand into foreign markets, providing more opportunity to U.S. workers and supporting the communities they live in.”
