Intergovernmental Agreement on Biosecurity Review—2016 Submission

Submission Overview

The Export Council of Australia (ECA) welcomes the opportunity to provide input into the Intergovernmental Agreement on Biosecurity Review (IGAB).

Maintaining a robust biosecurity regime has multiple benefits for Australia from a domestic consumption, export and environmental perspective. Australia’s strong biosecurity system has helped the government improve market access for the agricultural sector in key export markets. Indeed, a report published by the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences found that Australia’s biosecurity regime saves up to $17,500 a year for the average farmer by preventing local production and export market losses.
