  • Focus: The export credit debate explained

    News | 21 Jan 2011 11:21 | Laura Mueller

    <P><B><I></I></B><B><I>After much debate last year, new export credit terms have been agreed that could impact delivery financing. But there is still some uncertainty if or when these new rules will take effect, write Laura Mueller</I></B><B><I> and Victoria Moores</I></B><B><I> in London</I></B></P> <P>Airlines may face steeper financing costs because of a shake-up in the export credit system, which helped shelter carriers and manufacturers from the full brunt of the financial storm. Back in 2008, as the commercial banks slipped into turmoil and previously abundant liquidity dried up, the export credit agencies stepped in to safeguard new aircraft deliveries.</P> <P>The job of the export credit agencies, such as the US Export-Import Bank and COFACE in France, is to turn export opportunities into real transactions. In the aviation sector, this normally takes the form of loan guarantees, which cut risk for banks and can lower the interest rate for the airline doing the deal.</P> <P>Ohttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Focus-The-export-credit-debate-explained-352173/
