The Islamic Corporation for the Insurance of Investment and Export Credit (ICIEC), a member of the Islamic Development Bank Group, and Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation Europe Limited (SMBCE), a subsidiary of the Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation (SMBC) of Japan, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) regarding co-operation.

The MOU is intended to strengthen the existing partnership between the SMBC Group and ICIEC and to enable SMBCE and Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Malaysia Berhad (SMBCMY), the Shariah-compliant arm of SMBC, to better meet the needs of their clients using various insurance programmes provided by ICIEC in the area of project and export finance on a global basis. This is particularly pertinent for the SMBC Group in relation to its increasing number of infrastructure projects in ICIEC’s member countries in the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
