The reform of insurance supervisory systems for economies in transition with particular reference to Poland

Kawai, Y. (2000). The reform of insurance supervisory systems for economies in transition with particular reference to Poland. (Unpublished Doctoral thesis, City University London)


This thesis was prepared under the supervision of Professor G. Dickinson (City University Business School). The analysis presented in this thesis is largely based on the author's experience as adviser to Poland's Minister of Finance (November 95 - May 1998) and as secretariat for the OECD Insurance Committee (August 91 - September 95. Part of the thesis has already presented on several occasions, in particular at the Second East-West conference on insurance systems of economies in transition organised by the Polish Government and the OECD in April 1997. It was later revised on the basis of the conference's discussion and conclusion and published by OECD in December 1997. The author also appreciated the stimulating discussions in the IAIS (International Association of Insurance Supervisors) Emerging Market Issues Committee and G-10 Working Party on financial stability in emerging market economies, which provided some interesting views. Several of the examples quoted in this thesis refer to the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland despite the fact that they have joined the OECD. However, it was considered useful to describe the previous situation in these countries in order to illustrate several issues currently facing the economies in transition. The author would particularly like to thank Professor G. Dickinson, the Polish Ministry of Finance and the State Office for Insurance Supervision, Mr. C. D. Daykin (Government Actuary's Department, UK), Mr. J. L. Bellando (Commission de ContrOle des Assurances, France), Ms. R. Szep (State Insurance Supervisory Authority, Hungary), Mr. E. Stroinski, Mr. Rundo, Ms. Lagoda (PZU, Poland), the OECD Secretariat (Dr R. Pecchioli, Mr. A. Laboul, Mr. H. Ishii, Ms. C. Vignial), KPMG (Warsaw, London, Prague, Budapest), Cameron McKenna (Warsaw), Allen & Overy (Warsaw, London), and participants of the conference and meetings, for their valuable comments and suggestions. The author had been seconded to the Polish Government by the Government of Japan but the views expressed in this thesis are those of the author alone and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Polish Government nor the Government of Japan.
