Video report: OECD on Japan’s Pension System at a Glance, Impact of the Pandemic and Persisting Challenges
post date : 2021.12.20
On December 8, the OECD published “Pensions at a Glance 2021,” a biannual report on the pension systems across OECD and G20 countries. The new report discusses the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, while highlighting recent pension reforms in each country and evaluating automatic adjustment mechanisms.
As maintaining a sustainable pension system in rapidly aging Japan has always been a most challenging issue and subject of political debate, we invited from the OECD Ms. Monika Queisser, Head of the Social Policy Division, and Mr. Hervé Boulhol, Senior Economist on Pensions, who are responsible for the report, to share their views on Japan’s pension system and relevant policies. They joined our online briefing from Paris to present how Japan compares to other countries, and how well its pension system is working or not given the impact of the pandemic. They also outlined some of the major challenges for sustainable pension management in Japan and how those challenges can be overcome.
