7th Annual International Conference of Slovenia announced for September 6th, 2022, in Ljubljana

6 July 2022 — Daniela GHETU
The Insurance Supervision Agency of Slovenia (AZN) has announced the 7th Annual International Conference entitled "Insurance between Scylla and Charybdis: Searching for the Right Direction". The event will be held on September 6th, 2022, in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

The COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent government interventions to curb the negative effects of the pandemic have created an imbalance between supply and demand in the markets. The consequences of this imbalance have been a decline in purchasing power and a rise in inflation. Just as the end of the pandemic, statistics showed that inflation was easing, the war in Ukraine began. This has led to an increase in the prices, firstly of energy, then food and later on the products needed in agriculture. As a result, inflation started to rise and the long period of low interest rates was curtailed.

The conference will discuss the current economic situation and its impact on the insurance market as well as the measures taken by the financial services industry to achieve Europe's objective of becoming the first carbon-neutral continent.

The conference will host a number of distinguished speakers, starting with Petra Hielkema, Chairperson of EIOPA, Michaela Koller, Director General at Insurance Europe, Prof. Karel Van Hulle, KU Leuven and Goethe University Frankfurt and many other experts. The event is open to a wide audience, including policy makers and leaders in the insurance industry.

Participation in the conference is free of charge. Registration is available online until 29 August 2022

The organizers will provide for all the necessary measures to prevent infections and to safeguard your health.

More details on the program, speakers and location are available on the conference web page.
