UK - PricewaterhouseCoopers is to host a top level meeting of politicians and policy advisers on pension reform on September 6.
The meeting has been organised by Policy Network – a centre-left think tank which works with government and policymakers in 25 countries seeking to link and inform those involved in progressive policies and ideas.
Among those attending will be advisers and senior politicians from across the EU.
The meeting is being held in private but there will be a public conference in October to discuss its findings along with a printed publication of the meetings findings.
