Government Council on Social Policy Eyes Restructuring of Welfare State

The main points of the government’s plan for the first six months of 2016 and ways to implement them were discussed at a meeting on Tuesday of the government council on social policy.
The meeting also touched on imminent social security and pension reforms, including a so-called national pension, another proposal for higher social contributions by employees and employers in order to stave off another cut in primary pensions, as well as a continued unification of social security funds.
The council’s aim, a relevant announcement stated, is to lay the foundations for a full restructuring of the welfare state, adding that other policies implemented on social solidarity, on dealing with a humanitarian crisis, on employment, health, education and culture are part of an overall strategy to respond to the pressing social needs in the country.
