The U.S. Export-Import Bank has established a partnership with Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce and World Trade Center Charleston in South Carolina.
The City/State Partnership program gives exporters enhanced access to information about financing that supports export sales and jobs.
"This partnership will put Ex-Im's financing tools within easy reach," said Fred Hochberg, bank chairman and president, in a statement. "Together, we show more exporters and lenders how private financing and U.S.-backed insurance enable them to compete effectively, and that means more jobs for South Carolina at no cost to taxpayers."
As an Ex-Im Bank partner, WTCC can provide additional resources in trade finance expertise to Charleston businesses interested in exporting their products and services.
“In WTCC, entrepreneurs will find a one-stop resource for both technical information about international trade and advice on solving challenges in financing and risk-management,” the bank said.
