The International Agricultural Insurance Symposium (IAIS)

Thursday, June 2, 2016 to Friday, June 3, 2016


Having gained a worldwide reputation in a short time as a successful example in the field of agricultural insurance with Government – Private Sector – NGO collaboration model, TARSİM (Agricultural Insurance Pool of Turkey), launches an international event in its 10th anniversary of establishment. The International Agricultural Insurance Symposium (IAIS) will be held between June 2-3, 2016, in İstanbul, the meeting point of Europe and Asia, host of various civilizations and cultures throughout the centuries. In the framework of the Symposium, innovations and emerging topics on agricultural risk management and insurance in the world will be evaluated by esteemed experts in the field. Being the first large scale international organization on agricultural insurance to be organized in the region, the Symposium will gather about 500 participants from the institutions and organizations located in dozens of countries.

The central theme of the symposium is; cooperation, solidarity and sharing. For this reason, rug patterns which are used to share feelings in almost every part of Anatolia and which symbolize labour are used as a concept. Figures located on the rugs, such as cleat, women, star and eye represents fertility, productivity, solidarity and other core values of both the farmers and TARSİM.
