Seminar - A Conversation About Asia

The WSBA International Practice Section encourages you to attend  “A Conversation About Asia with Ex-Im Bank Director Patricia M. Loui” which will be held on Tuesday, February 28, 2012 between 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm at the World Trade Center in Seattle. This event is co-sponsored by the Export Finance Assistance Center of Washington (EFACW) and  the World Trade Club Seattle. 

The keynote address will be provided by Director Patricia Loui from the Export Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im Bank) whose main effort is to promote U.S. exports to Asia (where she has over 30 years of expertise).   Ex-Im Bank has supported over $60 billion in export sales from Washington State companies over the past 5 years. 

Director Loui would like to meet with Washington businesses who export along with the public and private organizations that support them.  Director Loui will also update the audience about the status of Ex-Im Bank’s reauthorization as well as news from Washington D.C. affecting international trade.  Ex-Im Bank’s reauthorization is currently a hot topic in Congress.  Ex-Im Bank’s charter expired on September 30, 2011, and the Bank is currently operating under an extension that expires on May 31, 2012.
