Dubai: The 13th Annual General Meeting of Aman Union, a professional forum for insurers and reinsurers in the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) member countries, will take place in Dubai from May 29 to 31, 2023.
The forum will bring together influential figures from the export credit insurance and reinsurance industry, insurance brokers, banks, and institutions involved in trade and investment activities to discuss pressing issues faced by OIC member countries. These issues include food security, climate change, and the impact of digitalization on trade and investment.
Mr. Oussama Kaissi, the Secretary-General of the Aman Union and CEO of ICIEC, commented, “The Aman Union annual meeting is a critical platform for the Union members and participants to discuss pressing issues that affect our industry and the OIC member countries.”
“The event will be a good opportunity to highlight climate change policies, especially with the UAE hosting COP 28 and the role of the OIC Business Intelligence Centre (OBIC) in supporting trade and investment in OIC member countries. We are excited to gather again physically this year after three years of virtual meetings due to the pandemic and to engage in fruitful discussions to propose collectively innovative ideas to tackle the current challenges,” the Secretary General added.
During the three-day event, participants will engage in discussions on the role of multilateral institutions, such as the ITFC, FAO, and IOFS, in addressing geopolitical issues that impact food security and trade. Additionally, they will explore topics such as digital transformation, sustainable credit insurance, and mitigating risks in Africa.
The event aims to showcase developments in fintech and highlight the role of OBIC in promoting trade and investment in OIC member countries while presenting innovative approaches to sustainable credit insurance and risk mitigation in Africa.
