Ex-Im Chief Hochberg on U.S. Export Finance Strategy amid the Emergence of State-Driven Capitalism

The U.S. economic position is being challenged as never before by the rise of state-driven capital and threats to our competitive strengths—strengths that have historically created unprecedented levels of wealth and prosperity. How the United States addresses these challenges will have profound consequences for American businesses and competitiveness for years to come.

How can we improve U.S. economic competitiveness? How big of a threat to the U.S. is the growth of state-directed finance in emerging economies around the world? How can the U.S. more aggressively advocate for our companies abroad? And how can we build a more durable international framework for export finance? Export-Import Bank Chairman and President Fred Hochberg will release the findings of the Bank’s annual competitiveness report which will help to address these questions.

Featured speaker:
Fred Hochberg, President and Chairman, Export-Import Bank of the United States

Introduction and discussion moderated by:
