MUMBAI (TIP): Export Credit Guarantee Corporation of India Ltd (ECGC) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Co-operation with the Export Credit Insurance Agencies (ECA) of BRICS countries in Fortaleza, Brazil.

The MoU, which was signed in the presence of Heads of Governments from BRICS countries, will strengthen collaboration among BRICS countries ECAs by establishing a framework of co-operation among them to support and encourage international trade between the BRICS countries, and wherever appropriate, to facilitate the supply of goods and services from their respective countries as part of a project in any of the BRICS countries.

“The cooperation will also help foster trade support networks and business linkages between India and other BRICS countries, and improve the business environment.

“It also provides for seeking assistance from each other in recovering the amounts for which claims could have been paid for projects undertaken in any of the BRICS countries,” said a ECGC statement. ECGC Chairman-cum-Managing Director, N. Shankar, who signed the agreement on behalf of ECGC, said that there is tremendous value in engaging exporters and supporting Indian trade and investments in BRICS countries.
