The United Arab Emirates will establish a credit rating office, which will make personal borrowing more transparent for banks, after its president Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nahayan approved the plan, an official said on Monday.

“(The credit bureau) provides complete transparency on the status of clients and the bank would have a clear vision,” Federal National Council (FNC) speaker Abdul Aziz al-Ghurair told reporters on the sidelines of the Gulf rulers summit in Abu Dhabi.

“This helps banks as well as clients avoid uncertainty,” he said.
