The Financial Regulatory Commission (FRC) of Mongolia and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) will host an international forum on “Inclusive Insurance-2014” on April 16-17 in Ulaanbaatar.
This jointly organized forum will be a first for the financial sector in Mongolia. International delegates will come from some ten countries, including South Korea, China, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, India, Bangladesh and Philippines. Moreover, it will be participated by Mr Ch.Ulaan, the Minister of Finance; Mr D.Bayarsaikhan, a chairman of the FRC; and by Ms Sezin Sinanoglu, the UNDP Resident Representative to Mongolia.
An important objective of this forum is to encourage sharing the knowledge and experiences on inclusive insurance from international and local speakers. The forum will bring together international insurance experts, international insurance regulators, technical insurance experts and development agencies, Mongolian political and business leaders, Mongolian insurance companies and financial sector stakeholders. The Insurance Association of Mongolia will organize an expo of insurance services in Mongolia during the Forum.
2014 is an important milestone year for Insurance in Mongolia. 2014 is the 80th year of Insurance in Mongolia and the 20th year of operations for FRC. The 5 year UNDP supported project funded by Luxembourg Government “Capacity Development for Micro-Insurance Market in Mongolia” will be completed in May of this year. In April as a result of this project new and easy to access insurance products for gers and small houses at an affordable premium will be available in the market. A number of insurance companies have been actively designing these new products with assistance from the UNDP project team. The product will be available to a significant proportion of the Mongolian population for the first time.
The forum organizers see the forum as an ideal platform to launch the next stage of development of the insurance industry in Mongolia.
