Section for Export Credits

Director Julie Rønning

The section for export credits is responsible for the officially supported export credits system in Norway. The Norwegian Export Credit Guarantee Agency (Garantiinstituttet for eksportkreditt – GIEK) provides guarantees while Export Credit Norway (Eksportkreditt Norge AS) provides loans. The section is also responsible for the remaining portfolio of loans from Eksportfinans, which provided export loans before Export Credit Norway was established. The section participates in the export credit groups in the OECD and the International Working Group on Export Credits (IWG), which is responsible for the development of international rules on export credits. Furthermore, the section is responsible for the Norwegian ownership in the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).
