Export-Import Bank Coming to Michigan

The Detroit Free Press reported:

"The U.S. Export-Import Bank said Tuesday that it plans to establish a full-time presence in Detroit and three other cities, making it easier for small businesses to access its services.

The bank's Detroit presence could help increase exports from Michigan, which was the eighth-largest exporter among the 50 states last year. The Brookings Institution and Public Sector Consultants prepared a report for Business Leaders for Michigan that calls for boosting exports, among other things."

Presque Isle County has several enterprises that could potentially benefit from increased exports.  Among those are:  Cadillac Products, Moran Iron works, the timber industry, and of course, Carmeuse Lime and Stone Company.  I encourage local business leaders to explore the opportunity for growth and expansion of their business through exports.  We have a lot of natural resources and local talent to put to work for the good of all.
