Mr. Adi Pramana, the Head of International Relation Division of AAUI stated that: “We want the general insurance industry to take a bigger role in contributing to the well-being of the society, reduce the cost of government disaster recovery funding, and also contribute to the growth of the economy. This is why, we from the association—with the support of the Indonesian government and the industry—would like to shed light on the latest development of the general insurance industry and also to identify ways that would allow the industry to contribute more to the society in the years to come”.
In line with the statement from Mr. Adi Pramana, The Head of Organizing Committee, Ms Rismauli Silaban stated that: “Our goal is to shed some light to general insurance practitioners from various countries so that they can reflect on how they can realize their potentials and create opportunity, either from within the industry itself or from their business environment. We design this three day event so that we can give hints and clues to face real problems in 2019 and beyond”
She added that: “This year, in the Gala Dinner Event, we will have a special moment that we dedicate to the victims of recent Earthquake and Tsunami in Palu and the surrounding area. “We would like to contribute to them and show them that we care. We also realize that the same catastrophe risk can potentially happen again anytime and anywhere”
