Poland -Struggle over pension reform -November 28, 2013

A draft bill prepared by the government, variants of which have been debated in recent months, could reduce public debt. The bill aims to transfer to the state many assets held by private pension funds, in an attempt to slash public debt as it will allow for a portion of the private Open Pension Funds (OFE) invested in Treasury bonds to be channelled back into the country's social security system.
