Airlines will be relieved – the US Ex-Im bank is back. After five months of political rowing over the issue, on Friday the bank was reauthorised – albeit it with a reduced lending limit of $135bn, down from $140bn. It was also told that 25% of its operations should be focused on helping small businesses, up from 20%.
