MOSCOW, July 12. /TASS/. Changes in the Russian pension system is inevitable, because the current ratio of pensioners and employed does not promise increase of pensions. This was stated by TASS, the President Trading-industrial chamber of the Russian Federation (RF CCI) Sergey Katyrin.
“Understand, in my opinion, reform is inevitable, that to date, one non-performing ratio is 1.2 employees. This, of course, does not promise all no not that increase in pensions, but even maintain that there is,” said Katyrin.
In addition, according to him, the necessary consensus on how to pass the pension maneuver in the country, and last Thursday a round table in the chamber of Commerce entitled, “How to reform the pension system for sustainable socio-economic development of Russia” have shown that questions on pension subjects are now many.
“In General, the key two words: trust and consensus. The first is that the whole reform needs to be credible. And the second is, of course, consensus. There are many questions that hung in the air, and yet there are no answers and in the proposed bills, and in General in the proposed reform. Today [at the round table in the chamber of Commerce] many have voiced, I have them all I will not enumerate. The trade unions asked us this question: pension money is whose money? Government, employer, pensioner? But other issues related to employment. Because an increasing number of employees, and to ensure that the number increased, we need to have the appropriate number of jobs,” — said the head of the chamber of Commerce.
Should be a road map of how all of this will happen. Who could absorb such a number appears willing to work? Rather, it is a small business, and, therefore, need then here. And so on.Sergey Cateringove TPP
He added that during the round table in the chamber of Commerce has made a lot of suggestions: what should be included in a road map of the pension changes and how to work with pension money, to have confidence in the private pension funds, and that the country appeared “long” money for investment projects and the economy.
