Mongolia’s pensions challenge calls for careful reform not radical change
In common with many countries around the world, Mongolia needs to make difficult decisions regarding its pension scheme. Nuno Meira Simoes da Cunha, the International Labour Organization’s Senior Technical Specialist on Social Protection explains why reforming the current system would be a better approach rather than making radical changes.
National Plan of Action for Decent Work (NPA-DW)
In 2005, the Government of Mongolia, the Confederation of Mongolian Trade Unions (CMTU) and the Mongolian Employers' Federation (MONEF) adopted a National Plan of Action for Decent Work (NPA-DW) . It was among the first countries in Asia to do so. Having completed implementation of NPA-DW (2005-2009), the constituents are in the process of formulating the NPA-DW for 2010-2015. In accordance with this plan, the ILO provides technical assistance and advice relating to employment creation, human resource development, social protection, social dialogue and the promotion of fundamental principles and rights at work.
