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.

“Our business is about making it easy for people to make environmentally friendly choices. We are looking to expand into new overseas markets and the ECA have been a huge help in this endeavour. The ECA have given us introductions to key businesses that can help us in the markets we are looking at, and their workshops and seminars on topics relevant to exporting were extremely useful. All up, our association with the ECA has been a great asset to Fruity Sacks.”Become a Member
