The SECP team encouraged industry representatives to share their suggestions and feedback on the way forward for sound and orderly development of the insurance sector.

The industry participants suggested implementation of mandatory insurance schemes including motor third party liability insurance. The IAP pointed out that the sales tax on life insurance, health insurance and reinsurance services by provincial revenue authorities significantly hindered the growth of the sector. Furthermore, issues concerning placement of reinsurances by the industry were also discussed during the meeting.

The SECP Chairman assured the IAP representatives fullest support of the SECP for the development of the sector and removing hurdles and resolving pressing issues of the industry.
