FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

INTERNATIONAL INSURANCE FELLOWS
CONVENE IN KANSAS CITY

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Oct. 14, 2011) — This week 14 insurance regulators from around the world kicked off a six week regulatory exchange as part of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) Fall 2011 International Fellows Program. Participants include regulators from Albania, Australia, China, India, Saudi Arabia and Thailand.

The Fall Program began on Monday with an overview of the U.S. regulatory system including how the NAIC helps coordinate the state-based system. Next week, the fellows travel to host state insurance departments where they will receive on-the-job training in specialized areas. Host jurisdictions for the Fall 2011 Program include Alabama, California, Connecticut, Iowa, Louisiana, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C. The program will conclude at the NAIC's Capital Markets & Investment Analysis Office in New York City. While in New York, the fellows will be briefed on investment analysis and participate in an industry-regulator dialogue.

Formerly named the International Internship Program, the NAIC developed the program in 2004 to advance working relationships with foreign market regulators, emphasizing the exchange of regulatory techniques and technology. With the completion of the 2011 Fall Program, a total of 157 fellows from 24 countries will have participated in the training. To date, 33 U.S. jurisdictions have hosted international regulators.
