The First Annual Pension Conference was held


On December 16, 2011 the First Annual Pension Conference, organized by the Ministry of Labor and Social Issues and the Pension system awareness center foundation with the support of USAID and USAID/PALM project, was held. Central Depository of Armenia was a co-organizer of the Conference.

The Conference brought together over 200 representatives of Government institutions, Banks, Insurance companies, Employers, Business associations, accountants, social workers and other pension reform stakeholder organizations. In light of the passage of Pension reform legislation in 2010 and the progress in 2011 the Conference aimed to analyze both what has been done so far by the institutions involved and the plans and priorities for 2012.

Co-organizers of the Conference included the Central Bank, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Economy and the Central Depository of Armenia (NASDAQ OMX Armenia). The Conference was attended and addressed by the RA Prime Minister Mr. Tigran Sargsyan, RA Minister for Labor and Social Issues Mr. Arthur Grigoryan, and the USAID/Armenia Mission Director Dr. Jatinder Cheema.

The First Annual Pension Conference was the first in its series of events to be organized each year. The Second Annual Pension Conference will be organized on December 2012.
