I would like to deliver a message on the occasion of the East Asian Insurance Day for 2021.
Today, October 18, marks "East Asian Insurance Day," which coincides with the historic first East Asian Insurance Congress held in Tokyo on October 18, 1962. Since then, each EAIC member city holds events on October 18 to generate awareness about the insurance business in the East Asian region.
Allow me to express my deep gratitude for the invitation to deliver a short message of goodwill in keeping the spirit of EAIC and its motivational force active in the midst of the current global crisis that has prevented us from celebrating this occasion with its usual fanfare and eventful activity.
To commemorate the fifteenth annual "East Asian Insurance Day" (October 18), which was established by the East Asian Insurance Congress (EAIC), I would like to send my heartfelt greetings on behalf of the General Insurance Association of Japan (GIAJ).
EAIC has announced the nomination of a new president, new executive board members and a chief delegate.
