International Freight Assistance Mechanism (IFAM) extended

In the past month we have seen some new developments from the International Freight Assistance Mechanism (IFAM) and they have extended the trial to encompass the mango as well as the rock melon (cantaloupe) season. This is due to the amount of produce that could be utilised in export.

Also at a Territory level we have a new State Director of Austrade here in the Northern Territory in Stephanie Smith she has taken over from Martin Ferreyra who has left us to become the new Trade Commissioner of East Africa. Stephanie has a background in Free Trade Agreement (FTA’s) as she worked for the FTA team within Austrade so I am sure she will have great knowledge of how companies can take advantage of them.


As always if anyone need some advice on export or wants to understand how to get ready to export please contact myself anytime for a confidential chat.
