This full one-day industry event provides an ideal opportunity to discuss the roles of insurance in achieving the G20's growth goals, particularly in the context of aging society, resilient economy, digital innovation and regulatory landscape, bringing together +200 participants from regulatory/supervisory authorities across jurisdictions as well as global industry.

Insurance business can help governments to achieve their growth objectives through its unique capacity to invest in various kinds of assets and provide society with protection against risk. Its importance will be much greater when pursuing sustainable growth in an era of global uncertainty.

Participants are invited to discuss how significantly insurance industry can support the G20 priorities, raising recognition of insurance as a critical partner for policymakers.

This event is hosted by THE LIFE INSURANCE ASSOCIATION OF JAPAN (LIAJ) under the auspices of the Japanese G20 Presidency.
