exim-bankSri Lanka is to begin work on setting up an Export-Import Bank (Exim) bank, Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake said today.

The Minister told Parliament there was a need for such a bank in Sri Lanka and it will be setup in Sri Lanka as a partnership between the Government and the industry.

He said that work on establishing an Exim bank in Sri Lanka will begin next year.

An Exim bank is a Government or semi-Government agency which commonly provides insurance cover to exporters against losses from non-payment by the importers, as a means to promote the country’s foreign trade.

Other services offered by EXIM banks may include marine insurance, post-shipment discounting of invoices, pre-shipment advances against confirmed orders, and help in finding new markets. (Colombo Gazette)
