A unit of the Treasury, the New Zealand Export Credit Office (NZECO) provides export credit and US surety guarantees to support the export activity of New Zealand firms and businesses.
An export credit guarantee is a form of insurance that covers an exporter if the importer or their bank defaults on payment.
NZECO’s export credit scheme is intended to extend the capacity of export credit facilities in the private sector. The Government’s maximum liability under the scheme is limited to NZD 350 million.
The NZECO web site includes information for exporters and banks interested in the NZECO's credit facilities.
