The event included a panel discussion on the market opportunities and threats for Digital Insurance and Fintech in Indonesia.

Dr. Onn discussed about the impact of digital on insurance distribution which includes how it changes customer behaviors as well as the challenges in distributing insurance online in the Indonesian market.Dr. Onn also shared his view on motor insurance - "To increase insurance awareness and penetration, the regulator will need to make 3rd party liability insurance compulsory for car owners and de-tariff the motor insurance. I'm hopeful that this will happen soon in Indonesia. Since Indonesia is part of the ASEAN Economic Community, they will have to follow other markets to de-tariff the motor insurance and make 3rd party liability insurance compulsory."
