Thematic event

New economic barriers in afro asian insurance markets

Africa and Asia have many things in common including a great potential for continued growth, similar challenges and shared objectives such as the goal to increase the wealth of their large populations.

The level of development and growth these two regions seek is however currently impeded by existing economic challenges and legislative barriers.  These factors, coupled with geographic distance and differences in culture and language have rendered mutual sustained efforts and goodwill crucial to the achievement of measurable, sustainable growth and prosperity for both regions.
