The availability of finance, particularly for exports to the emerging and developing markets remains a significant challenge
As we push forward with exports we need to streamline the support that the government can provide. We can compete on quality, technology and with the proper support we can compete on the finance level.
The thought of eliminating the import-export bank seems unreasonable as it can be essential to small business finance related to export and create jobs. I do understand the potential of larger companies perhaps creating an unfair playing field and am aware that Boeing (165,000 employees) finances export deals through this bank potentially creating an unlevel advantage for foreign airlines over domestic airlines. Seemingly this would be better rectified by limiting the size of the companies that could finance through the bank rather than eliminating the bank and hurting small business.
