Linking the Region's Insurance Regulators
In 1997, during the first ASEAN Finance Ministers Meeting in Phuket, Thailand, a Ministerial Understanding on Finance Cooperation was signed. This eventually led to the creation of the ASEAN Insurance Regulators Meeting (AIRM) in Jakarta, Indonesia the following year, with the objective of strengthening cooperation among those regulating the insurance business. The AIRM, thus, has become an annual forum for regulators that supervise ASEAN insurance industries where they exchange ideas and information towards developing and reinforcing supervision of insurance industries in the region.

A Regional Platform for the Insurance Industry
Established in 1978, the ASEAN Insurance Council is a regional platform for insurance leaders, professionals. and practitioners to network and share their knowledge as well as their expertise in various areas of the insurance business. Its main goal is the development of the insurance industry in the ASEAN region. The AIC is comprised by different insurance industry associations from the 10 member countries of ASEAN. These associations represent the life insurance and non-life insurance or general insurance sectors. Within the AIC, they are grouped in several committees such as the Education Committee, the Council of Bureaux, the ASEAN Natural Disaster Research Work Sharing (ANDREWS) and the ASEAN Reinsurance Working Group.
Bringing the Philippines to You
The AIRM and AIC Meetings are opportunities for insurance regulators and leaders of the insurance industry from the countries in Southeast Asia to visit their host country.
However, since travel is not advisable at this time due to the pandemic, participants will be treated to an online experience of the Philippines.
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
We promised you an unforgettable experience of the Philippines, the land of sun, smiles and song, but COVID-19 thwarted our plans.
On the occasion of our 2020 AIC and AIRM Conferences, we bring the Philippines to you instead, albeit virtually through this selection of short videos.
Enjoy! And, in better times (hopefully soon) we can welcome you back to our islands in person!
A trip to the Philippines is never complete without Music, Song and Dance. This is a clip of one of our many contemporary singers trending around the world via You Tube. The song she sings is very apt for our times. Ladies and Gentlemen meet Morisette!
Another virtual tour, this time via a vlog created by a visitor so entranced by the beauty of the Philippines that he is still living here on an extended vacation three years later! Here is his top 10 places to visit! Enjoy!
Philippine cuisine is a melange of flavors with pan-global influences ranging from Indian, Chinese, Spanish, Mexican and American. It can be confusing and daunting to the initiates, but those brave enough to try it rarely ever regret it.
This clip is a vlog by a foreign couple Mike and Nelly, who were brave enough to try, not only Pinoy food but life in the Philippines. They loved it so much that they uprooted themselves from their native Austria and now live here full time!
This is a vlog of one of their foodie adventures. Enjoy! Tara, kain na!
