Aneetha Warusavitarana on pension reform

Advocata Research Analyst, Aneetha Warusavitarana joined Biz 1st In Focus to discuss the window of opportunity for pension reform, given that new labour reforms are in dicussion.

We all know that the government sector pension is non-contributory – the entire burden of payment is shouldered by the government – and given our fiscal position, this is an area where reform should be seriously considered.

However, with new labour reforms in discussion, there is now a window of opportunity for the government to bring in a much needed contributory pension scheme!
