The relevance of the topic is due to the fact that despite the limitations by WTO to finance exports directly all countries promote exports through various mechanisms. The purpose of this article is to perform a comparative analysis of the total assets of export support agencies reflecting a country’s ability to support domestic exporters, as well as to identify the main tools of successful government support for exports. In addition, the article considers changes in the functions of export support agencies, which are a result of changes in world trade rules and a growing role of small and medium businesses in the economy, as well as differences between North American, European and Asian models of export support.

Key words: export support, export credit agencies, participation in supply chains.
