The American Insurance Association recently suggested that China's insurance sector could be more developed and efficient if foreign insurers were allowed more room to operate in the Chinese market. Is this the case? Should the China Insurance Regulatory Commission loosen the controls and restrictions on foreign investment in China's insurance industry?
Hogan Lovells will hold a round table discussion event to debate these questions and to share your views with us and with others in the industry. The event will be facilitated by Hogan Lovells insurance partner Victor Fornasier, who will be visiting from London, and Anna Elshafei, insurance specialist in our Shanghai office.
