Reform of the pension regime is continually evolving in the Baltic countries. This publication contains individual country reports, comparative analysis from a regional perspective and examines key policy issues in the private pension sector. It includes perspectives on these issues debated during the Pension Conference organised by the OECD in co-operation with the EU in April 2003 in Tallinn, Estonia. The analyses benefit from in-depth knowledge of OECD experience in these sectors, as well as from experience in other emerging market economies.
