AJMAN, The Ajman Department of Economic Development (Ajman DED) signed on Tuesday a memorandum of cooperation with Etihad Credit Insurance (ECI), to build and strengthen effective cooperation and establish a distinguished partnership in areas of common interest.

Signed by Abdullah Ahmed Al Hamrani, Director-General of Ajman DED, and Massimo Falcioni, CEO of ECI, the memorandum aims to coordinate cooperation between the two parties, to support Emirati companies, increase the UAE’s exports, and support export companies operating in the emirate by providing export insurance services.

This memorandum was concluded to enhance Ajman DED’s efforts to improve the export environment in the emirate, to achieve comprehensive and sustainable economic development in the emirate, establishing it as a hub for entrepreneurship, Al Hamrani said, adding that the agreement will include facilities to support export companies.

Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser Al Nuaimi, Director of Planning and Business Development at Ajman DED, said that the agreement provides for the implementation of initiatives that help grow the emirate’s exports, as well as the launch of seminars and workshops to familiarise exporters with the advantages of trade credit protection solutions.
