The Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry is greatly concerned at the likely run-down in the EMDGS Program as a result of capped funding since 1996/97.

"The Federal Government’s decision to run-down the Export Market Development Grants Scheme will only serve to undermine the effectiveness of Australian exporters, especially smaller exporters, in vital overseas markets. At very least, the Scheme should be fully indexed for inflation, while sizeable increases in funding will be necessary if the Federal Government is sincere about its commitment to ‘doubling the number of exporters by 2006".
