Two years after adopting the White Paper on Pensions, what progress was made to ensure the sustainability of EU pension systems in the future? What are the challenges still to be faced?
The European Commission organised a conference on 26 March in Brussels to discuss the state of play of pension reforms in the EU and analyse the way ahead.
The conference was opened by Commissioner Andor (read his speech). Together with Vice-President Rehn, Commissioner Barnier (speech), national decision-makers and key stakeholders he reviewed the achievements since the White Paper on Pensions, as well as further actions needed to ensure that adequate and sustainable pensions can be delivered in our ageing societies.
