Pension reform needs to include private

- adjustments to retirement age, payable pension

The seminar on Promoting Adequate and Sustainable Pensions yesterday
closed off with speeches by the two ministers spearheading the yet-to-happen

Gonzi, whose ministry organised the seminar in conjunction with the
European Commission, and Finance Minister John Dalli, both ministers
being tagged as future runners for the PNs top job once Eddie
Fenech Adami takes his leave.

yesterday by Investments Minister Austin Gatt, who also admitted that
every government administration since the 1970s helped contribute to
the financial black hole.
