In Autumn, Keith Richards, CII managing director of engagement, led the CII to sign an agreement with China's Insurance Professional College (IPC) in Changsha city, China.
The IPC is a specialised national institute for insurance education, now operating under the China Life Insurance (Group) Company and supports the China insurance industry with professional training. Under the signed agreement, IPC will promote CII qualifications to students in China and will also hold in-house examinations for CII learning units.
In addition, Sian Fisher, CEO of the CII, met with representatives of the People's Insurance Company of China (PICC) and an in-house examination agreement was signed. The agreement will enable PICC Shenzhen to invigilate CII examinations for its staff.
