Ex-Im Coalition - Loss of Ex-Im Hurting US Companies

Paul Darley, CEO, W.S. Darley & Co.
Small Business Is Losing Out To Foreign Competitors. "At a recent event hosted by the Illinois Chamber of Commerce's International Business Council, Darley CEO Paul Darley said, 'Every time our company loses a contract overseas, we are permanently locked out of that market because choosing another country's competitor means committing to a particular country's technology and design that can't be reversed easily or any time soon.' With the global middle class projected to grow by 200 million people per year, do we want to risk missing out on those new potential customers? Inaction will be ruthlessly exploited by our foreign competitors.'" (Laura Ortega and Paul Darley, "Save Ex-Im Bank - And Save Illinois Jobs," Crain's Chicago Business, 9/16/15)
