Prime Minister Pavel Filip chaired a meeting with the working group developing the pension system reform.
Labor Ministry representatives presented the basic concepts and the benefits of the new retiring system: insuring a sustainable, attractive pension system, with enhanced benefits, with transparent management.
Pavel Filip underlines the pension system must insure social equity, as the amount of the pension must mirror the beneficiary’s contributions to the social insurance budget.
The authors plan the same retiring age for different social categories, abandoning the present privileges.
The Premier called on the Labor Ministry to sooner publish the draft law in order to start the public debates on it. The Ministry is also to unfold a public awareness campaign as to the new reform.
