London, England – Export-Import Bank of the United States (EXIM) President and Chair Reta Jo Lewis traveled to London last week to hold a series of meetings with government leaders and private sector representatives to underscore EXIM’s commitment to financing U.S. nuclear energy exports.

“It was a privilege to travel to London to highlight EXIM’s deep commitment to supporting U.S. nuclear energy exports and driving the global energy transition,” said Chair Lewis. “We are eager to continue putting our decades of experience in analyzing technical, legal, and financial risks in the international nuclear sector to work to support U.S. nuclear exports around the world.”

On Thursday, Chair Lewis held a series of meetings with representatives from His Majesty’s Government to discuss EXIM’s financing tools to support nuclear energy projects.
