Detroit, Michigan -- Export-Import Bank of the United States (EXIM) President and Chair Reta Jo Lewis traveled to Detroit, Michigan this week to join private sector leaders and Michigan companies to host a Game Changer Exporter Roundtable at NewLab Detroit with Public Private Strategies, and representatives from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation. During the event, Chair Lewis highlighted how EXIM’s Make More in America initiative supports the Biden-Harris Administration’s efforts to reshore jobs, rebuild American manufacturing, and strengthen America’s supply chains. She also underscored how EXIM’s financing tools can help support Michigan companies, including small businesses, grow and expand through exporting.

"EXIM financing can be a game changer in not only helping American business owners overcome the challenges that come with exporting their products and services to markets abroad but ensure they can compete and win deals overseas.”
Later, Chair Lewis participated in a Fireside Chat at the University of Detroit Mercy’s College of Business Administration, where she discussed the role EXIM plays in supporting U.S. companies who export goods and services overseas, as well as her professional history.
