AIC Quick Talk 2020 Videos

As part of the ASEAN Insurance Council (AIC) Meetings 2020, we created a special series of interviews called AIC Quick Talk.  Each video features an interview with an insurance industry leader in his or her respective country.

Three questions served as their guide:

 

1) How is your industry doing amidst the Covid-19 pandemic?

2) Do you see opportunities in this crisis. If yes, what are you doing to take advantage of such opportunities?

And 3) Are there lessons for the insurance industry to learn from this experience?
