In a report released in late June, the Public Accounts Committee found that NSW avoided much of the wastage and excesses of other governments in Australia and overseas and commended the NSW Treasury and DSRD.
Public Accounts Committee Chairman, Joseph Tripodi MP, said "to a large extent, DSRD has been taking credit for investment that was going to happen anyway".
A survey of NSW exporters conducted by Business Asia/Overseas Trading, however, found most were happy with the support given and the overall performance of the DSRD.
The survey, sent to small and large exporters throughout the State, asked whether the DSRD was effective in several key criteria.
The survey respondents rated the DSRD quite highly on all counts.
