Who is eligible


Our eligibility criteria for involvement in transactions in emerging and frontier markets include the following broad categories:


Our eligibility criteria
Australian content

The transaction involves a sufficient level of Australian content or economic benefit to Australia.

This can be made up of:

  • Goods and equipment manufactured in Australia
  • Services rendered by Australian company e.g. construction or engineering services
  • Support for the involvement of Australian SMEs in a supply chain or as sub-contractors in resource-specific projects.
Environmental and social responsibility requirements

We incorporate two globally-recognised approaches in our environmental and social assessment of transactions: 

  1. The OECD Recommendation of the Council on Common Approaches for Officially Supported Export Credits and Environmental and Social Due Diligence (the Common Approaches); and
  2. the Equator Principles. 
Credit risk

The underlying credit risk of the transaction or project is sufficiently robust.

Market gap

We are an additional source of finance and not a replacement for private sector funding.

Domestic transactions

We can also provide financial support in Australia for projects and to companies that export their production, or companies that are an integral part of the export supply chain. The market gap, credit risk and environmental and social responsibility requirements criteria also apply for domestic transactions.
