Historical Background

The leaders of 29 countries from Africa & Asia came together on 18 April 1955 in Bandung, Indonesia and unanimously approved and announced the Bandung Declaration. The declaration was subsequently translated into plans for action. Accordingly, a call was made in collaboration with the Egyptian Insurance Market, represented by Mr. Ahmed Choukry El-Hakeim, the first Chairman of the Egyptian General Insurance Organization to establish the Federation of the Afro-Asian Insurers & Reinsurers “FAIR”. The Founders’ Meeting was held in Cairo in September 1964.
