Jubilee Australia Urges 'Don't ignore Productivity Commission recommendations for ECA reform'

(Jubilee Australia, Sydney, 19 April 2013) Jubilee Australia has made a submission this week to the Senate Foreign Affairs, Defense and Trade Legislative Committee, urging the Federal Government to ensure the key recommendations of the recent tax payer funded inquiry into export credit arrangements are adequately incorporated into legislation. Jubilee Australia and other advocates helped lead to the November 2011 establishment of a Productivity Commission Inquiry into Australia's export credit arrangements, the final report of which (released May 2012) suggested widespread changes to the EFIC (Export Finance and Insurance Corporation) Act.
