Reaffirming its commitment to secure UAE exports and investments, ECI has formalized MOUs with the Commercial Bank of Ethiopia, the country’s renowned financial institution; the state-owned Development Bank of Ethiopia; and the Ethiopian Insurance Company, the primary insurance solutions provider in the nation.

Raja Al Mazrouei, CEO of Etihad Credit Insurance, stated, “The signing of three pivotal MOUs with Ethiopia’s key banking and insurance companies aim to solidify our trade bridges with one of Africa’s key markets. This will not only enhance commercial prosperity and elevate the competitiveness of our national exports but also offer comprehensive insurance solutions to protect and empower the UAE businesses in their international market expansion. Such efforts align with our goal to diversify the UAE’s economy and cement its status as a leading global trade and business hub.”

Thani bin Ahmed Al Zeyoudi, Minister of State for Foreign Trade and Deputy Chairman of ECI, said “Our enduring collaboration with Ethiopia is enriched by a shared history and robust trade dynamics, has evolved into a powerful economic partnership, with the UAE standing as Ethiopia’s second-largest non-oil trading partner. ECI’s partnerships with Ethiopia’s premier banks and insurance entities reinforce our bilateral trade relations and set the stage for untapped investment opportunities.”
