IUMI meets MIA Hong Kong

By Lars Lange, IUMI Secretary General

During IUMI President Dieter Berg and IUMI Secretary General Lars Lange’s October 2016 visit to Hong Kong to announce the establishment of a new IUMI Asian hub, the opportunity was also taken to arrange a meeting with the Marine Insurance Association (MIA) Hong Kong.

MIA acts as the marine insurance committee within the Hong Kong Federation of Insurers HKFI. The members of the MIA are leading marine insurance professionals and work with high expertise and have extensive experience on issues relevant for the Hong Kong and EastAsian marine insurance market.

During the meeting, IUMI introduced its current work and was able to learn more about current challenges and opportunities in the region. A lot of common ground was discovered and IUMI and MIA agreed to continue a close cooperation – not least promoted by the new IUMI Asian Hub in Hong Kong.
