Past Congress

"Asia Pacific Financial Services Association"

History of APLIC Congress

The Asia Pacific Life Insurance Council (APLIC Council) was formed in September 1991, when the inaugural meeting was held in Singapore, attended by the Presidents of the National Life Underwriter Associations from Australia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand. In conjunction, the 1st Asia Pacific Life Insurance Congress (APLIC) was held hosting more than 5,000 delegates from the region.

With a common goal, the members of the APLIC Council extended their invitations to include other National Associations from Japan, India, Macau and Taiwan. Following the success of the 1st APLIC Congress, eight more congresses took its place. Today, the APLIC Council is known as the Asia Pacific Financial Services Association (APFinSA) and the Congress is still known as the APLIC Congress.
