RFPI: 10 years of helping build inclusive insurance markets

After a decade of helping build inclusive insurance markets for low-income and vulnerable households and Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME)s in Asia the regional program Regulatory Framework Promotion of Pro-poor Insurance Markets in Asia (RFPI Asia) will formally close in December 2022. To commemorate this milestone and 10 years of partnership and fruitful collaboration with government and private institutions in Asia, a closing ceremony will be held on 14 October 2022 at the New Coast Hotel, Manila City, Philippines.

With the theme “The RFPI Journey: Celebrating a Decade of Partnership and Cooperation for Developing Inclusive Insurance Markets in Asia,” the event will showcase the accomplishments and contributions of RFPI Asia and its partners in developing inclusive markets for the vulnerable segments of society in the region. It will also provide a glimpse into the challenges and opportunities in the inclusive insurance sector which partners and other stakeholders may want to explore through further collaboration among themselves and with German development assistance.

Commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, and implemented by GIZ, RFPI has successfully strengthened regulatory and supervisory conditions and practices and established the pre-requisites for Climate Risk Insurance for the poor and vulnerable in Asia.

The event will feature a series of activities all designed to highlight the contributions of RFPI Asia and its partners in inclusive insurance in the region. This will include speeches from dignitaries and high-level government officials, testimonials from key partners in the Philippines and in other countries, a recognition ceremony among others.
