Ninety-five percent of the world’s consumers live outside of the United States, and as a result, more and more U.S. companies are looking to increase their international sales with help from the Commerce Department’s U.S. Commercial Service and other federal agencies.
POWER-GEN, an International conference held for professionals in the power generation industry, brings together the U.S. Commercial Service and companies, offering outstanding export programs to assist you in your and partnering efforts.
During POWER-GEN 2004, a Senior International Trade Specialist introduced IFS to the services available to U.S. exporters by the U.S. DOC. IFS representatives met with key U.S. government financing agencies, including the U.S. Export-Import (Ex-Im) Bank and Commercial Service counselors from Brazil to discuss the firm’s plans for tapping opportunities in Brazil’s Power sector. In June 2005, IFS completed a new banking credit facility which included an Ex-Im Working Capital Guarantee Facility and Ex-Im Project Specific working Capital Guarantee Facility which as played a key role in helping IFS Land several major export sales to Brazil and Mexico.
