UAE’s export credit agency, Etihad Credit Insurance (ECI) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with leading artificial intelligence of things (AIoT) smart solution provider, Terminus Group in order to strengthen the Chinese company’s trade-related digital infrastructure projects in the Emirates.

According to the statement, the agreement intends to create bespoke credit insurance solutions in order to enhance the bankability of Terminus Group’s digital infrastructure projects in the UAE and upcoming projects in the MENA region.
