In May 2018, the Emirates Insurance Association held an International Marine Insurance Conference in Dubai. In the high level programme, certain topics and challenges were tailor-made for marine insurers from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), as well as presentations and discussions being delivered for the attendees from abroad. IUMI Secretary General Lars Lange was honoured to be invited to present on IUMI’s work during the conference.
The International Marine Insurance Conference and IUMI used the opportunity to discuss final details about the forthcoming membership of the UAE to IUMI, which will be subject to IUMI Council approval during the IUMI conference in September 2018 in Cape Town. Once approved, the UAE will strengthen IUMI’s engagement in the Middle East significantly.
