Chairman Local Organising Committee welcome remarks
On behalf of the Uganda Insurance fraternity, the Government of Uganda and the people of this beautiful country, I welcome you to the Pearl of Africa at the occasion of the 44th AIO Conference and General Assembly hosted at the Common Wealth Speke Resort Munyonyo from 21 -24, May 2017.
The theme of this year’s conference is “Furthering the Financial Inclusion Agenda of African Nations through Insurance”. Financial inclusion, as you are all aware is a concern to all of us and the conference will give us an opportune time to reflect on what we need to do to advance to this desired end.
I also, in equal measure, invite you to come and enjoy Uganda’s stunning scenery, abundant wildlife, birds, and a refreshing climate. Come and get a feel of excellent service from the world’s greatest hospitable people and unique culture.
The African Insurance Organisation (AIO), established in 1972, is a non-governmental organisation recognised by many African governments. Following the headquarters agreement the government of Cameroon signed with the organisation, the Permanent Secretariat of the AIO was set up in that country.
