The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) will be launching its seminal OECD Pensions Outlook Report 2020 in the MENA region for the first time, from the Kingdom of Bahrain.
The global organization which celebrates its 60th anniversary this week is considered to be the world’s largest think-tank and research centre on pensions. Last week, the OECD Secretary-General, Angel Gurría, virtually launched the OECD Pensions Outlook 2020 in the presence of presidents and executive directors of pensions research institutes and regulatory authorities from the US and Europe.
The OECD Pensions Outlook is an annual global research that analyses different pension policy issues both public and private, defined benefit and defined contribution, pay-as-you-go and funded retirement systems. Prepared against the background of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 edition discusses policy guidelines to help governments strengthen the resilience of their retirement savings and old-age pension systems.
