The economic engine that created unprecedented levels of wealth and prosperity in the United States is being challenged as never before as as companies, both large and small, are confronting nontraditional trade finance policies in emerging economies around the world. How the United States addresses the emergence of state-driven capitalism will have profound consequences for American businesses and competitiveness for years to come.

Are foreign governments intervening in markets to promote their own firms and thus distorting competition? Do these new models of capitalism threaten our position as the world’s dominant economy? What should the U.S. government’s policies be? Export-Import Bank Chairman and President Fred Hochberg will address these questions with a focus on what he sees in the world of export finance and preview the agency’s annual competitiveness report being released later this month.
