Microinsurance Training Program for Insurance Supervisors in  Asia

16 - 20 September 2013 in  Tagaytay, Philippines

The International  Association of  Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) has been promoting the alignment of Insurance  Core Principles  (ICPs) with efforts to promote inclusiveness of insurance markets. The need for  proportionality  in  regulation  processes, improved  access to  insurance services, and consumer protection is  pressing upon insurance regulators and supervisors. These challenges are addressed by the Application  Paper on Regulation and Supervision Supporting Inclusive Insurance Markets. The IAIS has been working on its "access agenda" through the IAIS  - Microinsurance Network Joint Working Group and the Access to Insurance Initiative (A2ii).

The insurance supervisor plays a pivotal role in this "access agenda" as they possess the skills and expertise to lead initiatives and foster multi-sectoral cooperation.

To contribute to the achievement of this agenda, the A2ii, the Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer lnternationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), the Toronto Centre, and the ASEAN Insurance Training and Research Institute (AITRI) are pleased to invite you to participate in the Microinsurance Training Program for Insurance Supervisors in Asia.
