The Action Continues at China Exim!

Even as many are trickling back from their summer holidays, the Export-Import Bank of China (“China Exim Bank”) has no time to rest on its laurels as the bank continues to work hard in providing financing to both foreign shipowners and domestic shipbuilders. Last week, the policy bank signed a massive RMB 50 billion (USD 7.35 billion) long-term strategic agreement with Jiangsu Rongsheng Heavy Industries. This is the largest agreement that the policy bank has ever signed with a non-state owned shipbuilder. The cooperation will entail the provision of the different types of bank guarantees required in Jiangsu Rongsheng’s business which include refund guarantees, tender bonds, performance bonds, payment guarantees and seller’s credit. Over RMB 10 billion (USD 1.47 billion) will be set aside for seller’s credit.
