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.

The Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) has announced it will shrink its board by more than one-third as part of a governance overhaul to make it "agile and more appropriate".
Smaller FTSE 350 defined benefit (DB) schemes were nearly 15 percentage points less well-funded than larger schemes in 2017, according to a Goldman Sachs Asset Management (GSAM) analysis.
The advent of collective pension systems could help the UK avoid demographic challenges which will make it "impossible" for society to help savers in retirement, experts say.
