Export Finance and Insurance Corporation (EFIC) National Interest Account

Quality indicator

Quantity indicator

The department oversaw, in accordance with the national interest provisions of the EFIC Act, whole-of-government coordination of the EFIC National Interest Account transactions. This process involved assessing the risks and benefits of proposed transactions in consultation with other departments and EFIC. The value of exports supported on the National Interest Account in 2002–03 increased over the previous year due to the draw down of existing facilities, a new performance bond facility to support the construction and sale of a new vessel by Incat Tasmania Pty Ltd, and continuing support for wheat shipments. See sub-output 1.1.6 for more information on EFIC and export credit policy.

Quantity information
Value of exports supported on EFIC’s National Interest Account $139 799 071
Value of claims paid on National Interest Account business $14 834 958
