The agreement was signed by both Massimo Falcioni, CEO of Etihad Credit Insurance, and Manuel Moses, CEO of ATI.

Under the agreement, both organisations aim to support joint Emirati and African ventures in their own countries, as well as their collaborative initiatives in other countries by sharing risks enabling these companies to grow trade globally.

“The UAE and Africa continent enjoy illustrious historic bilateral trade relations, and we at ECI are proud to reinforce that tradition with the support of ATI. This collaboration will provide UAE exporters real confidence to access the African region’s diverse markets and resources with state-backed guarantees and safeguards against commercial and political uncertainties,” said Falcioni.
