This study presents a range of indicators to enable comparisons between the pension systems of economies in the Asia/Pacific region. It also includes data for key countries that are members of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). It builds on the first Pensions at a Glance: Asia/Pacific which was also a joint project between the World Bank and the OECD, along with the OECD/Government of Korea Research Centre on Health and Social Policies (RCHSP) and updates the 2013 edition.

This report was prepared, under the general supervision of Gabriela Ramos, OECD Chief of Staff and Sherpa to the G20. The report was drafted by Andrew Reilly of the Social Policy Division of the OECD Secretariat and benefited from extensive comments by both Hervé Boulhol, Head of the Pension Team and Monika Queisser, Head of the Social Policy Division. Lucy Hulett prepared the manuscript for publication.

For this fourth report we are again indebted to the national experts who have contributed to the updating of the models used, many of whom also assisted with the first two publications. They are too numerous to mention here but details of attendees to the annual pension meetings in Seoul can be found on the Korea Centre website We are also indebted to the Korea Centre for all their assistance in organising the annual meetings and for coordinating contacts with national experts.
