1. Background

(1) APRC Annual Meeting

Founded in 2002, the International Association of Deposit Insurers (IADI) is a non-profit organization representing deposit insurers around the world (75 deposit insurers from 73 jurisdictions). It is domiciled at the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) in Basel, Switzerland.

In IADI, eight regional committees, namely, (ⅰ) Africa, (ⅱ) the Asia-Pacific, (ⅲ) the Caribbean, (ⅳ) Eurasia, (ⅴ) Europe, (ⅵ) Latin America, (ⅶ) the Middle East and North Africa, and (ⅷ) North America, have been established to reflect the characteristics of each region in the activities of the Association as a whole and to conduct activities in line with those regional characteristics. Officials of the DICJ have been serving as the Asia-Pacific Regional Committee (APRC) Chairperson since the IADI was founded.

Since its establishment, APRC has held annual meetings hosted by member institutions. This year, the DICJ will host the 12th Annual Meeting in Kyoto.

(2) International Conference

An international conference will be held as part of the APRC Annual Meetings under the theme of “Deposit Insurance and Bank Resolution: Global Trends and Effective Practices.” Top officials and experts from overseas deposit insurers will participate in the conference to share their practical experience and present views on deposit insurance systems and bank resolution in the future, based on the global trends in these areas.
