On March 17th 2022, the Royal University of Law and Economics (RULE), a leading university in Cambodia, co-organized an event for the Insurance sector together with Prudential Cambodia, an insurance provider, to award the winners of an essay competition promoting access to insurance for women. The event was also attended by Dr. Hor Sovathana, the Deputy Director-General of Insurance Regulator of Cambodia, Ms. Chea Daly, Secretary General of Insurance Association of Cambodia, Mr. Sanjay Chakrabarty, Chief Executive Officer of Prudential Cambodia, and Mr. Laurent Mesmann, Advisor to the Rector at the Royal University of Law and Economics. Speaking at the event Dr. Hor Sovathana said: “The essay topic is very meaningful and important, as well as in line with government policies that have been focusing on promoting gender equality and empowerment of women and girls. Women make up around half of the population so they must be allowed to become future potential resources to contribute to social and economic development, especially in the finance and insurance sectors.” “In 2017, about 49% of women worked for Prudential Insurance Company. This is a source of pride for women, and I’m really excited when women are getting more involved in the insurance industry,” she added. RULE takes pride in equipping its students with market integration and cooperating with the private sector to develop new projects and initiatives.
