What are ECAs?

Via their export credit agencies (ECAs), governments support companies in their business activities by lowering the financial risk. ECAs offer a wide range of guarantees, insurances, loans and credits to private companies. This makes it easier for these companies to gain access to finance, especially from banks. At the international level, ECA guidelines are established at the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
