Lexology's overview of ECAs

An interesting overview of official export credit agencies and activites. In 2020, the 10 largest MLT export credit volumes were from the ECAs for China (US$18 billion), France (US$12.1 billion), Germany (US$8.6 billion), Italy (US$8.4 billion), South Korea (US$5 billion), Sweden (US$4.7 billion), the United Kingdom (US$3.4 billion), Denmark (US$2.8 billion), Belgium (US$2.5 billion) and India (US$2.3 billion). [However],it should be noted that US EXIM, due to domestic debate on its role, was not able to authorise financings larger than US$10 million between 2015 and 2019. However, it is now reauthorised and can be anticipated to have increasing volumes in coming years. For example, in 2012, its total was approximately US$36 billion, whereas in 2021 its total was approximately US$1.8 billion. While down from 2020, this is reflective of the fact that, in 2020, US EXIM agreed to provide US$4.7 billion for the Mozambique liquefied natural gas (LNG) project alone.Loking at medium and long-term (i.e., over two years) (MLT) export credit volumes, which are most relevant to project financings, Atradius DSB on behalf of the Netherlands in 2020 provided US$1.9 billion of support, whereas Turkey provided only US$1.6 million of support, despite Turkey having a larger gross domestic product (GDP) than the Netherlands.
