”In many countries, what makes personal pensions products attractive are the tax incentives the state provides. What we will recommend is to provide the same tax incentives the member states are offering to the national pensions products, to ensure that users also have tax benefits when they invest in it.

It may take another decade to rebuild trust and reestablish a willingness to cooperate,” he predicted.
