Iran's ECA Reassures Foreign Trade Partners

(Financial Tribune, Tehran, 30 April 2019) CEO of the Export Guarantee Fund of Iran says the fund has taken special measures to shield exports from the negative impact of US sanctions. “In light of the new US sanctions and the fact that foreign traders do not receive Iranian bank [export] guarantees, the fund is willing and able to cover the commercial risks for exporters,” she noted. The EGFI said earlier that it wants to expand risk cover for export insurance by $2.5 billion in the current fiscal (started March 21) and increase the penetration rate of export guarantees.
