The Export Credit Insurance Organization (ECIO) was established by L.1796/1988, it is an autonomous legal entity in private law, it is a non-profit Organization which is governed by α 9-member Board of Directors, it is supervised by the Ministry of Economy and Finance, while its State Guarantee Capital amounts today to 1.47 billion euros. ECIO insures, against commercial and political risks of non-payment, the export credits granted by Greek exporters to foreign buyers abroad who buy Greek products, services, or even projects. ECIO also insures, against political risks, the investments undertaken abroad by Greek entrepreneurs. By offering the above services, ECIO effectively contributes to the "extroversion" of the Greek Economy. That is why we call all Greek exporters to sign an export credit insurance policy with ECIO. Not only for their own benefit, but also for the benefit of the Greek Economy as a whole.
