The amount of funding offered to each industry depends on many factors including the state of the economy, seasonal changes, import/export practices and much more.
However, the businesses that receive government funding are always decided upon on a case by case basis. Although a certain industry may be booming in Australia, it does not necessarily mean that simply being a new business in that industry is enough for you to be eligible to receive government financing.
The Australian Government is focused on economic growth and job creation. Because of these goals, the government tends to distribute funding accordingly, focusing on the small businesses that are most likely to improve the economic situation in Australia.
