Tasmanian growers accused of undercutting New Zealand with export subsidy

The New Zealand horticultural industry is crying foul over freight subsidies for Tasmanian exporters, complaining it allows them to undercut New Zealand in overseas markets. Tasmanian wine is just one of the products propped up by the freight subsidy, along with onions and cherries. Australia has defended the subsidies, known as the Freight Equalisation Scheme, as being compliant with the World Trade Organisation rules, but the New Zealand horticulture industry disagrees.
