Van Andel Global Trade Center (VAGTC), has actively promoted the Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im Bank) since 2005, connecting Michigan exporters with access to information and assistance on the export finance programs of Ex-Im Bank.
Ex-Im Bank has been in operation for over seventy years, as an independent U.S. government agency that helps finance the sale of U.S. exports, primarily to emerging markets throughout the world by providing loans, guarantees, and insurance.
As Michigan's only Ex-Im Bank Regional Export Promotion Program (REPP) member, VAGTC is here to help local businesses learn about and apply for a range of Ex-Im Bank financing products. Among its other services, the Center also offers global trade education and training, market analysis and assistance in developing export strategies.
