E-commerce Aid for Trade Fund
The E-commerce Aid for Trade Fund is a $4.5 million program to help developing countries in the Indo-Pacific maximise the benefits of digital trade. It will provide organisations and governments within the region with support to build their e‑commerce capabilities, enabling them to operate more effectively across borders and access new markets.
Grants are open to the public and private sectors with local solutions for stimulating e-commerce activity. Applicant organisations may be governments, businesses, Chambers of Commerce and other representative bodies, consortiums, cooperatives, investors, multilateral organisations, NFPs, NGOs, social enterprises or universities.
Grants of up to AUD500,000 are available per project.
Eligible countries for Round 1 were Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.

Australian Development Accelerator
Please note the Australian Development Accelerator (ADA) is now closed and is no longer accepting applications.
DFAT Innovation Fund
The ADA has been renamed the DFAT Innovation Fund (DIF) and has been refocussed to align more closely with the objectives and emphasis of the DFAT Innovation Strategy. The main shift of the DIF is a stronger focus on working with and through Post (Australian Embassies or High Commissions).
As such, applications for future rounds will only be open to Posts directly. Prospective applicants are advised to engage the respective Post directly to better understand their upcoming priorities.
For detailed queries, please contact email@example.com.
There are no rounds available for InnovationXchange at the moment.
