Some Good News For Exporters In The Face Of Adversity

It turns out the pen is mightier than the sword after all!

We are today applauding the Trade Minister for his swift response and action to helping exporters doing it tough amid the COVID-19 crisis.

The Morrison Government has today announced the injection of a further $49.8 million into the Export Market Development Grants (EMDG) scheme in the 2019-20 financial year. This brings much relief to us, our client base, and the wider export community whose businesses have suffered due to the global Pandemic.

Further, some rule changes will come into effect going forward, making it easier for exporters to access these funds sooner rather than later.

EMDG 2019 Review Submission by Mitchell & Co

As we have mentioned in our recent newsletter, the EMDG scheme is under review. After some intense lobbying and late nights with a full glass of red, we have now submitted our report to the EMDG review team.

Just like Colonel Light, we have surveyed the lay of the land and suggested our vision for the future of the EMDG scheme.

Thank you to all our client base who contributed by attending the State review sessions and sending in submissions via the online portal.

Our collective views will help inform Mrs Fisher and the review team when considering the effectiveness and efficiency of the scheme we live and breathe daily!
