Under the agreement, the two parties will provide mutual assistance, share data, as well as support cross border activities.
CBB governor Rasheed Al Maraj said: “We are delighted to have this framework of collaboration with ADGM as CBB continues to expand its partnerships with regulatory authorities in the region and globally to facilitate proper supervision and oversight over the licensed financial institutions operating on both jurisdictions."
