In 2006 the Central and Eastern European Countries Forum (CEEC Forum) was established under the umbrella of EFRP. The goal is to stimulate an exchange of information between the individual CEE countries on the one hand and between the CEE region and EFRP on the other hand.
Over the past decade, the CEE countries have introduced a mandatory – in some cases voluntary – funded pension pillar to supplement statutory pay-as-you-go schemes. The CEEC Forum provides representatives of private pension institutions in this region with the opportunity to discuss common challenges such as:
- the quantitative investment restrictions on foreign and other securities
- the design of multi-funds
- the pension pay-out phase and, recently,
- the political pressure to reduce contributions to the private pension pillar to resolve budgetary problems
The CEEC Forum meets twice a year and its members represent 9 CEE countries. Click in the left menu to view the full list of members.
On 18 September 2009 the CEEC Forum supported the International Conference of the Bulgarian Association of Supplementary Pension Security Companies on "multifunds - implementation and propspects in the pension systems of the CEEC". The supporting documents of the conference are available in the EFRP library event.
