Fed Agencies Join To Offer Free Manufacturing Export Webinars

By Terri Jo Neff |

The Export–Import Bank of the United States (EXIM) is partnering with a number of agencies in October to provide a series of free webinars for U.S. manufacturing companies of all sizes looking to bolster their export revenues.

The Washington D.C.-based EXIM is the official export credit agency of the U.S. government which operates as a wholly owned federal government corporation to assist in financing and facilitating U.S. exports of goods and services. The webinar series it is sponsoring will provide information about federal resources and services for manufacturers.

“With more than 95 percent of the world’s consumers living outside the United States, the focus will be on assisting U.S.-based companies tap into the global marketplace to expand their business and confidently export worldwide,” according to EXIM.

The month-long series of free webinars starts Oct. 7 with a focus on early-stage manufactures and the federal assistance available to them to support the idea phase, commercialization, and global growth process.

On Oct. 14, the webinar will feature financing and credit insurance options to help manufacturers who export to address their finance challenges.  That will be followed on Oct. 21 with a webinar on effective supply chain management for export manufacturers, with information on improving operations, reducing costs, and mitigating risk.

The final webinar of the free series will be Oct. 28 featuring Hispanic-owned manufacturers involved in exports. The webinar will be presented in Spanish and will include an overview of federal export promotion resources.

Other partners of the webinars are the U.S. Commercial Service, the U.S. Small Business Administration, the Manufacturing Institute, and the U.S. Census Bureau.
