The measures that EKN is now implementing are more extensive than those during the 2008 financial crisis. The needs are broader and small and medium-sized companies are more affected.
"EKN's new guarantees are both for large companies, their sub-suppliers and to all exporting small and medium-sized companies," says Anna-Karin Jatko.
"EKN's expanded solutions are aimed at supporting banks to solve the acute shortage of financing that many exporting companies are facing and ensure that trade can continue, which is necessary for Sweden," says Anna-Karin Jatko.
Financing is a prerequisite for Swedish exports:
- Exporting companies and their sub-suppliers need working capital financing.
- Their customers need to finance their purchases of Swedish goods and services.
"We have ongoing dialogues with banks and companies of all sizes. The need for financing is increasing rapidly and we continue to adapt our solutions to current needs," says Anna-Karin Jatko.
