The City/State Partners Program brings state, county, and local non-profit economic development entities together with Ex-Im Bank in a partnership designed to expand export opportunities.
If you have the local market knowledge and the ability to reach it, Ex-Im Bank offers trade finance expertise and programs specifically tailored to support U.S.-based exporters. By cooperating and pooling strengths, we can accomplish together what neither could do alone.
We think you’ll discover an alliance with Ex-Im Bank will pay off big-time. The benefits are simple. Supporting exports helps create desirable jobs in your community. Exporters generally offer higher wages and are a 30 percent more likely to stay in business than non-exporters. That means a stable and expanding local tax base in your local community.
