The United States Ambassador to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg J. Randolph Evans will welcome President and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Export-Import Bank of the United States (EXIM), Kimberly A. Reed for a series of meetings in Luxembourg starting September 22, 2020.  

Ambassador Evans stated: 

“It is an honor to host Chairman Kimberly Reed in Luxembourg to meet with American and Luxembourgish leaders. As the first woman President and Chairman of the Export-Import Bank of the United States, Reed is a pioneer in her field and her extensive experience in both the public and private sectors gives her invaluable insight into a diverse set of issues we are facing today.” 

During her visit, Chairman Reed will participate in a series of meetings with Ambassadors from across Europe and American Government leaders and participate in meetings hosted by the Government of Luxembourg and European Court of Justice. Chairman Reed will deliver remarks focused on the important role EXIM plays in supporting American jobs by facilitating U.S. exports to Europe and around the world. She will highlight EXIM’s new “Program on China and Transformational Exports,” which was mandated by Congress in EXIM’s historic seven-year reauthorization – the longest in the agency’s 86-year history – and signed into law by President Trump on December 20, 2019. The program advances the comparative leadership of the United States with respect to China and supports United States innovation, employment, and technological standards through direct exports in key industries, including 5G, financial technology, renewable energy, biomedical sciences, biotechnology, artificial intelligence, and advanced computing.
