More than 100 regional delegates are expected to attend the Committee for Insurance, Securities and Non-Banking Financial Authorities (CISNA) conference to be held in Victoria Falls next month.
The conference will be held from December 6 to 9.
The Zimbabwe hosting committee comprises the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe, the Insurance and Pensions Commission and the Securities Commission of Zimbabwe (SECZ).
CISNA hosting chairperson who is also chief executive officer of SECZ, Tafadzwa Chinamo, said the bi-annual conference would seek to achieve CISNA’s vision through championing a process of collaboration, engagement and co-ordination between regional non-banking financial institutions and other important stakeholders.
The last conference was held in Swaziland in August 2011.
Chinamo said preparations were at an advanced stage and the three-day event offered the hosts an opportunity to market the country to the conference participants who would be coming from all the represented Southern African Development Community (Sadc) countries.
“Zimbabwe’s CISNA members, namely the hosting committee member institutions, chose Victoria Falls as a venue in part to showcase the country’s prime tourist attraction to the 100-plus regional delegates,” said Chinamo.
He said CISNA was a Sadc body comprising the non-banking financial institution authorities, namely capital markets, collective investment schemes, insurance companies, retirement funds and providers of intermediary services in the Sadc.
It was established in 1998 and forms part of the Trade, Industry, Finance and Investment Directorate within Sadc.
