(TAP)- Premier Youssef Chahed Tuesday said a small cabinet meeting will be held within the coming days; a string of measures directed towards retirees will be announced.

A series of regional meetings will be held to expand the scope of social dialogue, the Prime Minister said at the opening of a national conference on "Senior Citizens and Retirees: Expertise and Experience in the Service of the Country."

Proposals that will be tabled at the end of the conference will be adopted with a view to improving the living conditions of retired people and helping them reintegrate into society, said Chahed.

There is also need to build on the experience of senior citizens in mentoring administration and private sector staff.

The concerns of retirees likewise need to be adequately addressed, considering the growing number of retired people.

Chahed said the government had demonstrated keenness since 2016 to introduce a package of social reforms as part of a strategic vision designed to set up a platform of social welfare for senior citizens and retirees among others
