In his presentation, Yared also expressed his grave concerns over the insignificant contribution of the Ethiopian Insurance industry to the GDP, which is less than one per cent, in general and that of life insurance in particular.
“In the advanced markets, life insurance takes the lion share over the growth of the premium income; in our case, however, it is insignificant, implying life insurance is not yet well exploited in Ethiopia.”, he underlined.
