Tianan Insurance Co. – a small Chinese insurance company, plans to establish a joint venture with foreign participation to carry out activities in the field of life insurance.

Limiting the access of foreign insurers to the Chinese market and encouraging the creation of joint ventures with the participation of Chinese insurance companies is aimed at:

- ensuring stable functioning of the insurance market in China;

- enabling the transfer of insurance technology and know-how from more advanced international insurance companies to emerging Chinese insurance companies;

- providing opportunities to protect objectively weaker national insurance companies from potentially tough competition with strong foreign companies.

The introduction of significant restrictions on the access of foreign insurers to the insurance market in China led to the fact that only the companies American International Assurance Ltd, a subsidiary of American International Group and Tocio Marine & Fire Insurance Co. Ltd, Thomas Miller & Co. Ltd., Lincoln Mutual, Chubb licensed.

In June 1999, the joint Chinese-French company Czinshen began to officially operate. Joint venture operations involving foreign insurers are focused on servicing foreign economic relations, protecting the interests of foreign suppliers and cargo owners, which is partly due to the constant monitoring of the development of foreign market participants in China.

For example, the company "AIA" expressed its participation in the fate of China, buying taken from him in the XIX century works of art and returning them to Beijing.
