by Tod Burwell, BAFT president and CEO | May 08, 2019

“We applaud members of the Senate for today’s bipartisan votes to confirm Kimberly Reed to serve as president of the Export Import Bank, and Spencer Bachus III and Judith DelZoppo Pryor to the board of directors – giving Ex-Im a quorum and allowing the agency to return to its full functionality.

“As the official export credit agency of the United States, Ex-Im Bank plays a crucial role in boosting U.S. exports in support of our economy, and has provided more than 1.7 million jobs in the U.S. over the last decade. We look forward to a fully operational Ex-Im Bank and its facilitation of the export of America’s goods and services.”
