Finance from U.S. Government Agencies

The U.S. government offers finance assistance to U.S. investors and exporters through  three trade and investment agencies:  the Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im Bank), the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), and the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (TDA).

Working together with the U.S. Commercial Service, these agencies focus on maximizing American commercial interests in the ancillary infrastructure that will be built as a result of the economic reform and privatization programs in Kazakhstan.  The Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im Bank) provides trade and export finance to U.S. and foreign companies that use U.S.-manufactured goods and services.  The Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) offers eligible U.S. investors insurance coverage and financing for U.S.-sponsored projects. OPIC can also provide political risk insurance coverage for capital market transactions.  The U.S. Trade and Development Agency (TDA) provides strategic feasibility study funding and technical assistance to furnish U.S. expertise to governments and private sector companies.
