The independent review of the Export Market Development Grants (EMDG) scheme and Australian Government Financial Assistance to SME exporters (the Review) has commenced its public consultation process.
The Review is being conducted by Ms Anna Fisher (Co-owner Zonte’s Footstep), who will examine how the Australian Government can best provide financial assistance to help SME exporters to promote their products and services overseas and enter new export markets.
This is a key pillar in implementing the Government’s agenda to increase the number of exporters by 10,000 over the next three years and create an additional 250,000 trade related jobs over the next five years.
Businesses and interested parties are invited to participate in consultationshosted by Ms Fisher, or make submissions online.
