Capital Insurance Group Limited (CIG) is delighted to announce the official opening of its Kokopo Branch on 07 March 2022.
Located in a central part of Kokopo town, the office is managed by Mobile Sales Manager, Ms. Julie Lupai, who has a wealth of experience in the insurance industry with a solid network of clientele in Kokopo and the New Guinea Islands (NGI) Region.
Key clients and guests witnessed the opening ceremony and welcomed the presence of CIG in their hometown. The City Manager for Kokopo, Mr. Freddy Lemeki, congratulated CIG for this timely development, given that Kokopo is the “Fourth City” of Papua New Guinea, and that the need for insurance will grow and accompany future developments.
General Manager for Capital General Insurance Company (CGIC), Mr. Udu Vai, and General Manager for Capital Life Insurance Company (CLIC), Mr. Douglas English, were also present for the launch.
In his opening remarks, GM CGIC, Mr. Vai, affirmed the attendees saying that, “This expansion is the first branch [in PNG] outside of Port Moresby and that we are confident that this will resource our people here in Kokopo and across the NGI region.”
GM CLIC Mr. Mr. English also added that this is an opportune time to also look at medical service providers and increase awareness around health care insurance to help local families and communities.
The new CIG Branch is now located at Elwel Street in Kokopo and opens on Mondays to Fridays from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm.
CIG is a locally owned Insurer with offices in four other markets within the Pacific Region offering both General and Life Insurance Products in Fiji, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, and the Kingdom of Tonga.
