Puan Khadi­jah Ab­dul­lah, Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer of The Malaysian In­surance In­sti­tute (MII) re­ceived the “Ed­u­ca­tional Ser­vice Provider of the Year” award on be­half of MII, in ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the In­sti­tute’s great ef­forts in turn­ing it­self into an im­por­tant provider of hu­man cap­i­tal devel­op­ment so­lu­tions to the in­dus­try in Asia and for ex­pand­ing its role to help cre­ate greater pub­lic aware­ness about in­surance.

Puan Khadi­jah re­ceived the award which was pre­sented at the 16th Asia In­surance In­dus­try Awards 2012 Din­ner on 28 Oc­to­ber 2012 in Kuala Lumpur. The award win­ners were eval­u­ated by a panel of ex­perts and in­dus­try lead­ers made up of 29 rep­re­sen­ta­tives from in­surance and rein­sur­ance com­pa­nies and as­so­ci­a­tions in and out­side Asia. This year, the awards re­ceived about 800 en­tries from com­pa­nies and or­gan­i­sa­tions all across Asia and 14 win­ners have been ac­knowl­edged for their out­stand­ing per­for­mances.

"We are hon­oured and de­lighted to re­ceive this award which in a way is a tes­ti­mony that MII is able to meet the needs and ex­pec­ta­tions of the in­surance in­dus­try not only in Malaysia but also across Asia," said Puan Khadi­jah. This award is very spe­cial to MII as it also re­flects the avail­abil­ity and the ca­pa­bil­i­ties of tech­nolo­gies and var­i­ous

in­fra­struc­tures that MII pos­sesses in pro­mot­ing train­ing and ed­u­ca­tion and el­e­vat­ing pro­fes­sion­al­ism among the in­surance and non-in­surance fra­ter­nity through­out the Asian re­gion.

MII has trans­formed from be­ing a typ­i­cal non-profit in­surance train­ing provider to a hu­man cap­i­tal devel­op­ment so­lu­tion provider. The year 2011 saw MII re­ceive about 150,000 par­tic­i­pants in all its train­ing and ed­u­ca­tion pro­grammes, con­fer­ences and ex­am­i­na­tions. It also at­tracted in­ter­na­tional par­tic­i­pa­tion in its train­ing and ed­u­ca­tion pro­grammes with for­eign par­tic­i­pants from

Bangladesh, In­done­sia, Iran, Sey­chelles, Kaza­khstan, Bhutan, Mon­go­lia, Viet­nam, Nigeria, Mal­dives, and Saudi Arabia, among other coun­tries. The huge num­ber of par­tic­i­pants was due to the in­creased num­ber of of­fer­ings and strong tes­ti­mony of the qual­ity and rel­e­vance of them.

The In­sti­tute also takes pride by de­vel­op­ing and pro­vid­ing var­i­ous other plat­forms for knowl­edge shar­ing and in­for­ma­tion through its Knowl­edge Cen­tre, se­ries of aware­ness pro­grammes with Per­badanan In­surans De­posit Malaysia (PIDM) and its prom­i­nent role as the Sec­re­tariat of the ASEAN In­surance Train­ing and Re­search In­sti­tute (AITRI) in which through AITRI, MII strength­ens the in­surance co­op­er­a­tion among the ASEAN in­surance reg­u­la­tors.

Un­der its Ca­pac­ity Build­ing Ini­tia­tives, MII has iden­ti­fied and started im­por­tant projects that could change the land­scape of in­surance train­ing and ed­u­ca­tion in Malaysia and the emerg­ing mar­kets. A to­tal of RM44.8 mil­lion worth of projects will be im­ple­mented un­der the pro­gramme, with most of them still in the pipe­line. All th­ese ini­tia­tives are be­ing done by MII with the un­der­stand­ing that the success of the in­dus­try re­lies on its tal­ents’ pro­fes­sion­al­ism and com­pe­tence.

This sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion also saw MII gain­ing recog­ni­tion as the first win­ner from Asia to have won the pres­ti­gious Award, “Pro­fes­sional Ser­vice Provider of the Year” in Lon­don in 2007.

From the board of direc­tors, man­age­ment team and staff of MII, we would like to thank each and ev­ery­one who has sig­nif­i­cantly contributed to the devel­op­ment of the In­sti­tute. Let us to­gether cel­e­brate this proud moment of MII and the Malaysian in­surance in­dus­try.
