Executive Course on Pension Policy
In collaboration with ILO-ITC, ILO Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific, and HelpAge International, ESCAP provided a training course on pension policies for Government officials, officials from pension and provident funds, civil society and other stakeholders from countries in the Asia-Pacific region from 17-21 December 2018 in Kajang, Selangor, Malaysia. The training course featured 69 participants from 14 countries in the Asia-Pacific region. The training course equipped participants with skills to actively participate in national policy processes towards designing and reforming pension systems. It further provided a whole-systems approach to understanding pension policy, covering design of both contributory and tax financed (non-contributory pension), and provided opportunities for participants to share innovations and policy initiatives from their countries.
