EKF’s risk assessment when exporting to Laos

EKF's cover policy towards Laos

High payment risk EKF covers only the risks associated with business transactions in the country if the buyers meet a number of very stringent requirements that limit EKF's risk liability. The payment risk may however be so high that EKF does not wish to engage in any business transactions in the country.
