About our Policy Work

BExA represents members' interests on day-to-day and policy issues relating to UK export and trade policy and on other specific trade and export-related issues raised by members. We are a valued contributor to, and are engaged with, many Government departments and committees to drive export policy forward.  These include the Department for International Trade and UK Export Finance, the Department for International Development, and attending the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Trade & Industry and Houses of Parliament Select Committees. Where common interests exist, BExA also collaborates with other trade associations and export related bodies to lobby jointly on key issues.


Annual UK Export Finance Benchmarking

First published in 2010, the BExA Annual ECA Benchmarking Paper measures UK Export Finance, the UK's Export Credit Agency (ECA) against other ECA's around the world, and has become the go-to guide to determine how the UKEF product range compares. 



Consultation Responses

BExA seeks input from members to respond to House of Lords,  House of Commons Select Committee and Government department inquiries on issues relating to exporting and the finance of trade.



BExA Committees

In addition to the standing Industry, Banking & Insurance and SME & Micro-Exporters Committees, BExA has established a number of sub-Committees to respond to key issues or sector challenges.  Chaired by a BExA Council member and supported by Working Groups drawn from the wider membership,  our sub-Committees include Brexit, Concessional Lending, Customs & Export Licensing, Export Strategy, Government Relations and Legal & Compliance.
