OECD-ADBI-Financial Regulatory Department, Ministry of Planning and Finance, Myanmar Roundtable on Insurance and Retirement Saving in Asia

Event | 4 - 5 March 2019 Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar
Time of event

09:00–18:00

Background

The Asia-Pacific is among the fastest growing markets in the world for insurance and is responsible for an increasing share of global insurance premiums and pension assets under management. However, insurance and retirement savings penetration remains low, leaving millions of people unprotected against risks posed by economic, demographic, and social changes in the region. The development of insurance and private pension markets provides an opportunity for the diversification of risk over time and among different participants.

Jointly organized by ADBI, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, and the Japan International Cooperation Agency, this roundtable will address emerging policy issues in Asia’s insurance and private pension markets.

The purpose of the roundtable is to better inform policymakers and private sector stakeholders in Asia about the sound development of insurance and private pensions markets, facilitated by the sharing of experiences and good practices. This includes inputs from the Financial Regulatory Department, Ministry of Planning and Finance, Myanmar.

The event will contribute to policy recommendations based on evidence-based analysis.
