Report Reaffirms Ex-Im Bank’s Great Value (3/16)


Back to News


A new two-page report has been released by the Ex-Im Coalition, amplifying what Seafarers have known for years: The Export-Import Bank, commonly referred to as the Ex-Im Bank, is a self-sustaining, job-creating boon for the U.S. economy.

The SIU has always stood firmly in favor of the Ex-Im bank, and the following report illustrates some of the reasons why, after 80 years, our support remains strong.
