ABSTRACT
An interview with Axel Theis, chief executive officer (CEO) at Allianz Global Corporate and Specialty AG (AGCS) is presented. He states that the company carefully looks at each local market of Asia as they have specific needs and so AGCS does not come with a fixed idea. He mentions that AGCS is giving all its attention to Japan, which was struck by an earthquake as their Japanese clients need them. He highlights that India remains a challenge as awareness of its products is not much there.
