We are ready to provide the Palestinian Pension Fund with consultative services in the field of social insurance and retirement. Regarding the aim of establishing a new Pension Fund in Palestine, we are prepared to share our experience with this country", Dr. Seyed Taghi Nourbakhsh, the Managing Director of the Iranian Social Security Organization (ISSO) stated in a meeting with Dr. Ahmad Majdalani, a member of Executive Committee of Palestine Liberation Organization and the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Palestinian Pension Fund.
Dr. Nourbakhsh also described the main features of Iranian social security system and noted the vast experience of the ISSO in the field of actuary and ICT and announced the preparedness of the authorities to share their knowledge with Palestinian experts and professionals.
He also declared: "From the technical point of view, each pension fund should be established on the basis of a tripartite approach with partnership of the Government's, Employers' and Employees' representatives. I also believe that a pension fund can play an important role in social solidarity in both national and international levels.
Dr. Ahmad Majdalani expressed his purpose of travelling to the I.R. of Iran to get more familiar with valuable experience of the ISSO in providing social security services as well as extending relations between the two countries.
He added: "Now, we are in the process of preparing the draft of new social insurance law in close collaboration with the ILO and hope to take the advantage of the ISSO experience in different aspects of social security."
