Francis Chung and I attended the EAIC this week in Hong Kong. This is the annual gathering of brokers, insurers and reinsurers operating in Asia Pacific. Also participated in the Asia Insurance Review Annual Awards dinner last night hosted by Sivam Subramaniam (Singapore) and Greg Dobie (London). I have been on the international judging panel for the awards for the past six years. ACORD's profile is gaining momentum in Asia and participation in standards-setting is also expanding.
