Welcome to the 30th Seoul East Asian Insurance Congress!
It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the 30th Seoul East Asian Insurance Congress in COEX, Seoul from August 30 to September 2, 2020.
The theme of the Seoul EAIC is “2020, A Brave New Decade for Insurance.” We hope that the event will lay the foundation for the insurance sector to prepare and brace for the next decade. Furthermore, it is truly meaningful that the congress will be held in 2020, the historical year that celebrates 30th anniversary since the first EAIC.
Today, we are living in a time of unprecedented change. The insurance industry is facing various challenges-social impacts of demographic changes caused by aging population, increasing cyber risks due to technological developments, and the convergence of technology and insurance in the era of “the fourth industrial revolution,” to name a few.
We believe that the 30th EAIC will serve as an important opportunity for industry leaders from our member countries to gather and discuss the industry’s roles and responsibilities in the face of a radically changing business environment home and abroad. It is certain that through the event, we can gain insight and wisdom for effective changes and innovation, thereby further advancing the East Asian insurance industry.
Seoul is a city with much to offer. Not to mention its infrastructure to hold international meetings, it attracts visitors with its many cultural attractions and great food. We will do our best to make sure that the 30th Seoul EAIC will provide all the participants with everlasting memories in the beautiful city as well as networking and knowledge sharing opportunities.
In closing, let us extend our deepest gratitude to the EAIC Executive Boards and Chief Delegates for their dedicated work in preparing the event. We look forward to seeing you in Seoul in September 2020.
