Regardless of the depressed economic conditions, low levels of disposable income among individuals, and earnings pressure on businesses, the country's insurance market turned out to be positive. Hence, the country's insurance market is well-shaped and deserves recognition for the pioneering role it played in the country's financial development in the past.
