The International Conference of Pensioners and Retirees has started. More than 30 countries are represented.
It is mostly dominated by Spanish speaking people.
However, the organizers have made arrangements for translation into English and vice versa.
A new international organsation for pensioners and retirees,
under the banner of WFTU, has been established yesterday itself.
We circulated a detailed document depicting vividly
the scenario of pension system in India and the recent attack on it.
It was well taken by delegates.
Some of the delegates, especially from European countries, came to us later on and appreciated it.
The speech by Cuban delegate was perhaps the best.
DG addressed the conference on 5th February 2014.
Conference will be concluded in the evening of 6th February
