Intergovernmental Agreement on Biosecurity Review—2016 Submission
Submission OverviewThe 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.

"In 2014 Vekta Automation became involved in the Export Awards and started to get a better understanding about the role of the Export Council of Australia. After attending a seminar in Perth in February 2019 the decision was instantly made and we signed up the next day. A decision we should have made 5 years earlier. For Vekta, the information, expertise and networking opportunities that the ECA provides has been valuable. It is reassuring knowing that there are experienced and knowledgeable people we can turn to when advice is needed."
