To secure trade credit for imports, an importer can opt for the services of export credit insurance companies. For example, for imports from China, there is a common mechanism - Sinosure.
Sinosure, or China Export & Credit Insurance Corporation, provides coverage for commercial and political risks of non-payment. With Sinosure guarantee, Chinese suppliers are more open to offer trade credits for their buyers. Buyers, on their side, can easily defer payments and manage their cash flow. So, Sinosure export credit insurance products prove invaluable in fostering trust and facilitating smoother international trade relations between importers and exporters.
