Export Finance and Insurance Corporation Amendment Bill 2014—2014 Inquiry
Submission OverviewIn response to the most recent inquiry, the ECA would like to reiterate the important role Efic plays in providing finance to Australian exporters and express its strong support for increasing the flexibility of Efic’s lending arrangements to include the ability to lend directly to all SMEs. The AIBS research referenced above, and other surveys conducted over recent years, have all highlighted difficulties that SME businesses have experienced in accessing working capital / finance to take advantage of export opportunities.

“90% of our business is export based and we are expanding rapidly throughout Asia. As we move into new countries and regions it is important to understand the country, culture and business norms and ECA has helped us do this through their programs. ECA has also helped us improve our shipping and documentation efficiency, especially with the new GHS requirements. Overall, ECA is a wealth of information and knowledge and have always been very helpful when we have specific issues or questions.”Become a Member
