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.
