Posted October 7, 2002; 11:10 a.m.
Dan Renberg, a member of the board of directors of the Export-Import Bank of the United States, will present a lecture at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 8, in 016 Robertson Hall. Renberg, a 1986 Princeton graduate in politics, will speak on "Financing Exports in our Nation's Service: The Historic Role of the Export-Import Bank of the United States."
The bank was created in 1934 to aid in financing and to facilitate U.S. exports. A government held corporation, it provides guarantees of working capital loans for U.S. exporters, guarantees the repayment of loans or makes loans to foreign purchasers of U.S. goods and services, and provides credit insurance against non-payment by foreign buyers for political or commercial risk. Before joining the bank, Renberg served as legislative director and deputy chief of staff for U.S Sen. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania.
The lecture is sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and Business Today , an undergraduate student-run organization whose goal is to build community between business leaders and college students.
