Cooperation between EXIAR and ICIEC will allow reducing risks associated with new projects in Islamic countries
The partnership with ICIEC will allow to distribute risks under the projects that are implemented in Uzbekistan, Egypt, and Turkey, which have already established themselves as reliable partners of the Agency, and will also provide an additional insurance buffer when implementing new projects in Africa and Asia.
“Cooperation with export credit agencies and international insurers is a key element of our strategy. The role of ICIEC as an institution for the development of trade in the region, as well as the status and influence of ICIEC in the countries - members of the Islamic Development Bank provides us with a unique tool for the implementation of new projects. We have much in common both in the countries where we have traditionally supported our exporters and in the markets, in which we seek to expand our presence. This year we have already signed the first deal on joint project support in Uzbekistan. The renewal of the reinsurance agreement should create a solid base for the implementation of new large-scale projects,” Nikita Gusakov, General Director of EXIAR JSC, Senior Vice President of REC.
