Commonwealth Budget—2017

The Export Council of Australia (ECA) praises the trade-facilitating measures announced in the 2017-18 Budget, such as a long-term commitment to improve domestic infrastructure in Australia, and “business as usual” funding for the Australian Trade and Investment Commission.

Measures such as these support efforts by Australian industry to engage in the global economy.

“We support a budget that will look to create new jobs, support advanced manufacturing initiatives, invest in regional transformation projects as well as introduce initiatives that address regulatory reform, as these will ensure long-term prosperity for Australia,” ECA CEO Lisa McAuley says.
