The MoU replaces the previous agreement signed in Kuwait in February 2018 and increases the total amount of Ex-Im financing potentially available under the agreement from USD3 billion to USD5 billion.

Under the MoU, Ex-Im and Iraq’s Ministry of Finance agreed to identify potential projects in Iraq for procurement of US-produced goods and services.

“This MoU signals to the marketplace that US companies and their workers in America want to be a part of the rebuilding effort in Iraq,” said Ex-Im president and chairman Kimberly A. Reed. “We anticipate that the Ex-Im-backed financing to follow from this agreement will support exporter and supply chain jobs in multiple industries across the USA and also foster job creation in Iraq.”
