A WORD FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL ORGANIZING COMMITTEE - LOC

Mr BENHABILES CHÉRIF
President of the LOC, Vice President AIO

On behalf of the organizing committee that I have the honor to chair, and with great pleasure I wish welcome to all the participants in this 49thannual conference of the African Insurance Organisation AIO that will be held from May 27 to 31, 2023 in Algeria, under the theme:

“The Contribution of the Insurance to Food Security Challenges in Africa”.

Algeria is preparing to host this important event that brings together experts and specialists to discuss the issue of the contribution of the insurance industry to food security in Africa, in this difficult economic situation marked by global and regional tensions and crises (climate change, the COVID 19 pandemic, conflicts, etc…).

The harmful repercussions of this particular economic situation have been felt more on the African continent than somewhere else that is why the involvement and contribution of all economic actors in setting up innovative and integrated socio-economic projects is deeply important and has the power to materialize the sustainable development.

I hope that the commendable contribution of specialists and experts in the field of the insurance industry will give our African organization the real dimension it deserves as an essential substantial source of proposals to support socio-economic programs that intend to ensure and preserve food security for African countries.

Thus, the prospects and new challenges that the insurance industry is facing constitute, today, an imperious necessity and must fit into the framework of the harmonization of the legal environment and use more efficient technological and communication means to support innovation and growth.

I remain convinced that the theme of our conference, that has been carefully chosen , and which will be led by expert speakers and eminent professionals, will target the ways and means to be used , through the exchange of ideas and experiences, in order to get several proposals for solutions adapted to each strategy and development perspective.

The organizing committee is committed to do everything possible and will spare no effort to make this event a perfect success and will carefully ensure the good reception of its honorable guests.

Have a pleasant stay among us in Algeria.
