Regulators Engage in a Virtual Dialogue with Financial Services Agency, Japan
On June 3, 2021, the NAIC and the Financial Services Agency, Japan (FSA) met virtually for the biannual Insurance Regulatory Dialogue. Participants from NAIC leadership included David Altmaier, NAIC President and Commissioner, Florida Office of Insurance Regulation; Chlora Lindley-Myers, NAIC Vice President and Director, Missouri Department of Commerce and Insurance; Andrew N. Mais, NAIC Secretary-Treasurer and Commissioner, Connecticut Insurance Department; and Michael F. Consedine, NAIC Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
