"Jobs Ahead: The Next Four Years of the Export-Import Bank"Remarks by Fred P. HochbergChairman and President, Export-Import Bank of the U.S.Export-Import Bank Annual Conference Washington, DC April 4, 2013

Welcome to the 2013 Annual Conference of the Export-Import Bank of the United States.

In preparing for today, I thought back four years to January of 2009 – when President Obama put forth my name as Chairman and President of the Export-Import Bank. 

I took the oath of office that May.  In those four months, America lost three million jobs.

The economy was in a free fall.  It was a shocking and frightening time.

We needed to take action.

That's exactly what President Obama and this Administration did.

And now, in 2013, thanks to you, America's business community, an additional 6.4 million Americans are at work in the private sector.  We've added jobs in each and every month for the past 36 months.

Give yourself a round of applause.

America is coming back.

Two weeks ago, the President nominated me for another term as Chairman and President of Ex-Im.  It has truly been a privilege and an honor.   This is, by far, the best job I've ever had.

I look forward to my confirmation hearing and, if confirmed, the opportunity to keep working with you to grow American jobs.

***

Like so many of you in this room, I've run a business,

I know that your first thoughts over your breakfast cereal are not how many jobs you'll create by lunch.  Your focus is on sales, product innovation, the competition, your margins – all key factors of your success.
