U.S. EXIM Bank Facilitates U.S.-Angola Trade

Rick Angiuoni, Director of Global Business Development for Africa, Export-Import Bank of the U.S. (EXIM Bank), will meet with leading Angolan commercial banks and Angolan Government officials to discuss EXIM Bank programs.

EXIM Bank offers financing mechanisms to support trade between the U.S. and foreign countries, including Angola. Through EXIM Bank, the U.S. Government works worldwide with public and private sector buyers to facilitate the purchase of U.S. equipment and technologies.  Angolan companies interested in pursuing EXIM Bank-supported financing for U.S. purchases should work directly with their Angolan commercial bank and their U.S. suppliers to leverage these programs.  For more details on EXIM Bank programs please visit www.exim.gov and view the attached fact sheet

In 2014, EXIM Bank signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Government of Angola to finance trade and infrastructure through EXIM Bank financing tools. This MOU identifies various economic sectors: energy, infrastructure, railways and roads, mining, telecommunications, agriculture, construction equipment and environment, including water and sanitation projects.

Since the signing of the MOU, EXIM Bank has extended financing support in Angola to enable the acquisition of Boeing aircraft by TAAG Angola Airlines and the acquisition by ENANA of two fire trucks manufactured by U.S. company Oshkosh.
