Export Yellow Pages
The Export Yellow Pages (EYP), was a multi-media trade and promotion resource for exporters that provides U.S. companies, exporters and export related service providers across all industries a convenient way to engage in export promotion and establish contacts and conduct business and trade around the globe with international buyers. Through the EYP, the Department of Commerce offers all U.S. companies and service providers a free online and print business directory listing and access to the directory and multi-media export. The Export Yellow Pages is located at http://www.exportyellowpages.com.
The Export Yellow Pages is no longer published.
The Export Yellow Pages which has been in existence for over a decade provides multi-media trade and promotion resources and learning tools to exporters. The Export Yellow Pages was published online and annually in print.
The Export Yellow Pages online directory detailed products and services of over 27,000 U.S. companies representing over 65,000 business categories, as well as offers access to U.S. company executives, product catalogs, news and other export related information and resources. The website is no longer fully functional.
Connections and links to the Department of Commerce and other U.S. government international trade offices and agencies and resources are also presented at the Export Yellow Pages to further assist U.S. companies and foreign buyers in navigating international trade opportunities and processes. This website and searches on it do not reliably work anymore.

- Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im Bank)
Ex-Im Bank is the official export credit agency of the United States federal government. It is an independent agency in the Executive branch established by Congress in 1934 for the purposes of financing and insuring foreign purchases of United States goods for customers unable or unwilling to accept credit risk. The mission of the Bank is to create and sustain U.S. jobs by financing sales of U.S. exports to international buyers. Ex-Im Bank does not compete with private sector lenders, but rather provides financing for transactions that would otherwise not take place because commercial lenders are either unable or unwilling to accept the political or commercial risks inherent in the deal.
