  • Session 3: Medium-term implications of COVID-19 for the insurance sector
  • Session 4: Medium-term implications of COVID-19 for policyholders
  • Session 5: Pandemic-related business interruption – magnitude and private sector appetite
  • Session 6: Designing a pandemic risk insurance programme 

The roundtable will bring together high-level government officials and experts from public authorities, including regulatory and supervisory authorities, ministries of finance, officials of state governments and international organisations, standard setting bodies, the academic community, the private sector as well as NGOs.


This event is co-hosted by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) with sponsorship from the Government of Japan.
