About Export-Import Bank of China
The Export-Import Bank of China (CEXIM) is a state-funded and state-owned policy bank with the status of an independent legal entity. The bank falls directly under the leadership of the State Council and is dedicated to supporting China’s foreign trade, investment and international economic cooperation.
With the Chinese government’s credit support, the bank plays a crucial role in promoting steady economic growth and structural development, supporting foreign trade and implementing China’s ‘going global’ strategy. It is also committed to providing financial support to key sectors and weak links in the Chinese economy to ensure sustainable and healthy economic and social development.
In China, the bank has 32 branches on the mainland and one representative office in Hong Kong. Overseas, it has branches in Paris and St. Petersburg, which help to facilitate China’s business interests in Africa.
The bank’s main mandate is to implement China’s national development strategies, and operate as a policy bank with clear-cut market positioning, well-defined business portfolio, unique functions, sufficient capital, good governance, strict internal control, safe operation, high-quality service and sustainable development capability.
Currently, the majority of its financial support goes to foreign trade, cross-border investment, the Belt and Road Initiative, international industrial capacity and equipment manufacturing cooperation, science and technology, cultural industry, ‘going global’ endeavours of small and medium enterprises, and the building of an open economy.
