Export Consultants Association Incorporated (ECAI), is the peak body established to represent EMDG Export Consultants and Australian Exporters.
Currently ECAI has approximately 60 members, representing EMDG Consultants ranging from large consulting firms to small business operators. A survey in respect of the most recent grant year indicated that our members assisted over 2,000 Export Market Development Grant (EMDG) applicants, and in total worked with over 4,000 Australian exporters.
Since its inception in 1994, ECAI have been actively involved in lobbying Government and Austrade to support and expand the EMDG Scheme.
The existence of the EMDG Scheme, which has been assisting Australian exporters for over 40 years, can be attributed substantially to the work that has been undertaken by the ECAI Committee and its members.
