Currently, there are no political decisions to return to the draft act transforming the OFE and it is not known when it will be a good time, said Deputy Minister of Funds and Regional Policy Waldemar Buda at the Thursday conference at the WSE.
“For complicated reasons, the act transforming the OFE has not been delivered to the end. This draft has passed the entire cycle of agreements between the parliamentary committees and the Council of Ministers and it turned out that we have a pandemic, uncertainty on the stock exchanges, and therefore we have not returned to it. It is not known when it will be. a good time for it, because the dynamics in terms of the assets accumulated there is serious and there are no political decisions to go back to the project, ”said Waldemar Buda.
“This is not a good time to make these changes – we have a pandemic, high inflation. We did not want to do it now, when financial markets are unstable, assets are uncertain. Rather, at this point, at least in the annual perspective, we would not come back to this “- he added in the lobby.
In February 2021, almost a year after the suspension of work, the discussion on the transformation of Open Pension Funds into Individual Pension Security Accounts returned to the Sejm. The bill was processed almost unchanged, but the vote after the third reading scheduled for the end of April did not take place. As it was later reported, in September the legislative process of the new bill was to begin. (PAP Biznes)
