The AMICE Congress (3-5 June 2018) will bring together mutual and cooperative insurers from all over Europe to meet in Stockholm, Sweden where they will discuss the “mutual connections” that exist within the sector. The Congress, AMICE’s flagship event for its members, brings together senior representatives from insurers which are run on mutual/cooperative principles – a sector representing more than 30% of the total European insurance market. The Congress will be hosted by Swedish mutual insurers Folksam and Länsförsäkringar.
In addition to representatives from the mutual and cooperative insurance sector in Europe, AMICE members, the event will feature European policymakers, experts and industry leaders. Speaker highlights include:
- Keynote intervention by Fredrik Reinfeldt (pictured), former Prime Minister of Sweden
- Panel discussion with Gabriel Bernardino, Chairman of EIOPA
- Congress moderated by Mia Odabas, economics journalist
Grzegorz Buczkowski, AMICE President:
“The theme of our Congress will be “Mutual connections”, in which we will be highlighting the connections between mutual/cooperative insurers and their members/policyholders, their work forces and wider society. We will also be considering the connections with the European institutions and between Europe and its citizens, where the mutual/cooperative insurance sector provides financial stability and protection to hundreds of millions of European members/policyholders.”
The Congress will be opened by Fredrik Reinfeldt who has been active in Swedish and international politics for 25 years. He was Prime Minister of Sweden 2006-2014, during which time he transformed the Swedish economy and labour market. As a result of this, Sweden became one of the most profiled reform countries in the developed world. During his eight-year membership of the European Council, he was the last President of the rotating presidency before the introduction of a full time President of the European Council. Today, he is a globally respected economist and lecturer on governance, leadership and political reforms.
