08.01.2019. The Export-Import Bank of the United States is resuming its work in Ukraine

The US EXIM Bank has lifted restrictions on conducting operations with the state and private sector of Ukraine under export lending programs, loan guarantees and export insurance. The Bank's resumption of work is taking place against the background of stabilization of the macroeconomic situation in Ukraine, due to the launch of a new stand-by program by the IMF at the end of 2018, and the Moody agency's upgrading Ukraine's rating to Caa1 from Caa2 (and outlook from “positive” to “stable”). Taking into account the narrow specialization of the EXIM Bank, this step may indicate preparations for the arrival on the Ukrainian market of one of the major American companies.
