Abstract

Publicly funded export credit agencies (ECAs) help businesses access opportunities abroad, particularly in times of crisis, like the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet, without a clear governance framework, ECA support can become a ‘race to the bottom’ in export support terms and conditions. That could crowd out the private sector and have severe implications, particularly for developing countries. Now is the time to negotiate a clear regulatory framework to prevent a zero-sum subsidy race and observe the sustainable development agenda in official export credit support.
