Export – Import Bank

  • Export – Import Bank or Exim Bank is the common name for the export credit agency found in many countries. They can be full agencies of the government or semi-private institutions, such as state-owned corporations or public – private partnerships.
  • Indian exports during the fifties and the early sixties consisted of primary commodities and traditional manufactures like jute and cotton textiles.
  • The export sector remained neglected with a small share in India՚s GDP.
  • Nevertheless, the process of industrial development in India promoted through the import substitution strategy provided an impetus to the growth of a large and diversified industrial base, particularly the engineering industry.
  • A number of emerging industrial sub-sectors also proved to be internationally competitive. The change in India՚s export profile commenced slowly in the sixties with a growing share of non-traditional manufactured goods and value-added products.
  • During 1978 - 79, the Ministry of Finance convened meetings to discuss the proposal regarding setting up of an Export-Import Bank. At these meetings, it was agreed that there was a justification for a separate institution on the ground that it would be able to devote concentrated attention to the needs of exporters and explore new methods for augmenting credit on reasonable terms. It could also concern itself with investment finance required for export production.
  • Export promotion combined to push the government into taking a final view. On June 18,1980, in his budget speech in Parliament, the then Finance Minister, Shri R. Venkataraman, announced the momentous decision to establish an Exim Bank.
  • Export-Import Bank of India was thus born after two decades of debate on the need for a specialized export credit agency for India and the role of international trade in India՚s economic development.
  • The Export-Import Bank of India Act was passed in September 1981 and the Bank commenced its operations in March 1982.

    • import of technology and export product development,
    • export production,
    • export marketing,
    • pre-shipment and
    • post-shipment and
    • overseas investment.
