There needs to be more awareness on the importance of insurance in Fiji, says Assistant Minister for Infrastructure Vijay Nath.

Mr Nath made the statement yesterday while receiving submissions from Dominion Insurance which was responding to the Reserve Bank of Fiji Insurance Annual Report 2015 before the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Economic Affairs.

Dominion Insurance chief executive Jason Nili agreed and highlighted that October was the month of insurance as incorporated by Reserve Bank of Fiji along with other insurance companies.

“It cannot just end come October 31. I find a lot of initiatives coming into place and do stop on end date and don’t progress because of lack of time and things that are taking precedence,” he said.

Mr Nili however highlighted their partnership with Digicel Fiji and BIMA, an international mobile micro-insurance provider which provided affordable insurance covers via telemarketing to people.

This, he said, was a way they have raised awareness on their insurance products.

Mr Nili said they also prioritised educational programmes to rural areas and secondary schools on the importance of insurance.
