EFIC throws its support behind Endeavour Awards 2011

EXPORT Finance and Insurance Corporation (EFIC) is proud to sponsor the 2011 Endeavour Awards’ ‘Exporter of the Year’ award. The organisation has spon sored the awards since their incep tion in 2003 and is delighted to reward excellence among Australian manufacturers who are succeeding in today’s very compet itive world markets.

As the Australian Government’s export credit agency, EFIC’s role is to help Australian exporters over come the barriers they face when growing their businesses overseas. EFIC works directly with exporters or their banks to pro vide financial solutions that can assist exporters to free up their working capital or fund their export activities.

“For more than 50 years, EFIC has helped Australian manufactur ers to take advantage of overseas opportunities and compete on the world stage,” says Andrea Govaert, EFIC’s executive director, SME.

“Australian manufacturers often encounter considerable obstacles when exporting or establishing global supply and distribution chains. With global financial mar kets remaining volatile and credit for exporters still tight, the last 12 months have continued to be chal lenging for Australian companies expanding overseas.

“The ‘Exporter of the Year’ award acknowledges the innova tion, hard work and determination that are needed to make a local manufacturing business into an international success.”
