10/04/2014 - Encouraging more people to work later in life would help the Netherlands tackle the growing challenges of rapid population ageing and rising public spending. Reforms of the past decade, such as raising the retirement age, have had an impact but more needs to be done, according to a new OECD report.
Lodewijk Asscher, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Social Affairs and Employment, and Stefano Scarpetta, OECD Director of Employment, Labour and Social Affairs, will discuss the findings and recommendations of the report at a press conference in The Hague at 13.30 on Wednesday 16 April 2014. It will take place at the Ministry of Social Affairs, Anna van Hannoverstraat 4, The Hague.
