As the market becomes more and more challenging, ECA support will be more necessary than ever. We gather ECAs and product users active across Africa to consider what the product is needed for in these trying times:
What initiatives is ECIC working on to support businesses impacted by Covid-19?
What have international ECAs offered for their local exporters seeking to do business in Africa?
Businesses will continue to need support even when the bulk of the crisis recedes. Will ECA led initiatives be long-term, and how do they plan to serve their clients further down the line?
Will the OECD need to become more flexible in its guidelines surrounding local content? To what extent are these rules inhibiting international investment into African projects in need of ECA cover?
