"On behalf of the Chairpersons of the Technical Commission on Investment of Social Security Funds, Mr Saleh bin Nasser AL-Araimi, and the Chairperson of the Technical Commission on Statistical, Actuarial and Financial Studies, Mr Jean-Claude Menard, I would like to welcome Mr. Reza Kashef, Director General of the ISSO International Affairs Department and Mr Hossein Moshiri, Director General of the ISSO Statistics & Socio-Economic Evaluation Department as the Vice-Chairpersons of these respective TCs. Following the practice of the International Social Security Association (ISSA), this appointment would be until the end of the triennium 2014-2016.
The Chairperson and Vice-Chairpersons constitute the Steering Committee of the TC. The Vice-Chairpersons have an important role in assisting the Chairpersons to plan and guide the activities of the ISSA overall work programme and objectives. They are also expected to provide technical inputs and practical support to the TC projects. The ISSA General Secretariat provides technical support to all the TCs including the planning and coordination of the TCs’ work plans with the other ISSA activities".
