The new Chairman of the Executive Committee (Board) of the Ghana National Bureau of the ECOWAS Brown Card Insurance Scheme, Mr Victor Obeng-Adiyiah, has said that the board will invigorate the ECOWAS Brown Card Insurance Scheme Protocol and build on the good works of the former board.
He said the focus of the new Executive Committee, would be to pursue fair and prompt settlement of cross-border claims, create public awareness of the relevance of the ECOWAS Brown Card Insurance Scheme, handle cross-border accident cases effectively and prudently and efficiently manage finances of the bureau.
Mr Obeng-Adiyiah made the assertions in a speech he delivered following the induction of the new board into office last Tuesday.
He said when it came to cross-border accidents, it was pertinent that both local insurers and those from other ECOWAS member countries treated the named insured fairly and settled claims promptly.
