The Export-Import Bank is Virginia’s economic growth engine

With the Port of Virginia in Hampton Roads being the third-busiest port on the East Coast, Virginia plays an integral role in our country’s exporting economy. Our Virginia ports are valuable assets that enable exporters in a variety of industries from across the commonwealth and Mid-Atlantic to ship goods to overseas buyers competing in the global marketplace. Just as our ports facilitate the physical transfer of goods from the United States abroad, the U.S. Export-Import Bank facilitates the financing necessary for domestic and Virginia firms to succeed abroad.
