The government is committed to ensuring the EMDG program:
The government has also committed to strategically refocusing the program. This is to better support Australian exporters to develop new markets in line with the government’s trade diversification priorities.
The EMDG Operational Review in 2022 told us we needed to balance the level of interest in the EMDG program with available funding. This is to allow the program to deliver meaningfully for Australian businesses.
Austrade sought feedback from EMDG recipients, business and other interested stakeholders.
Findings from this consultation and previous reviews will help inform advice to the government in 2023.
