Regional Social Security Forum for Asia and the Pacific

3-5 décembre 2024 | RiyadhArabie saoudite

The Regional Social Security Forum for Asia and the Pacific (RSSF Asia-Pacific) is the biggest and most important social security event in the region. The Forum will take place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, 3–5 December 2024, at the invitation of the General Organization for Social Insurance (GOSI).

Organized by the International Social Security Association (ISSA), RSSF Asia-Pacific will bring together around 300 participants and represent a landmark opportunity for peer-to-peer sharing, learning and networking, enabling participants to forge links with other leaders and professionals in social security.

For leaders and decision-makers

RSSF Asia-Pacific is aimed at leaders and senior managers of ISSA member institutions in the region. Invitations will also be extended to ministers, policymakers, experts and representatives of international and regional organizations, such as the International Labour Organization (ILO), the Asian Development Bank (ADB), the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) and the ASEAN Social Security Association (ASSA).

Key social security themes

The Forum will address a range of topical priority issues for the region. The extension of coverage to different groups in the formal and informal sectors, the evolving social protection needs of populations and the leadership role of social security institutions for the development of social security systems in a context of complex labour market, economic and demographic developments will be some of the important aspects discussed. The Forum will also focus on how management and service delivery is transforming, and how social security can contribute to resilience and sustainability.

ISSA Good Practice Award

The RSSF Asia-Pacific will showcase innovative work and good practices on the part of social security institutions in the region. The prestigious ISSA Good Practice Award for Asia and the Pacific and the new ISSA Special Distinction for Innovation will be presented at a Special Ceremony during the event. All ISSA members in the region are encouraged to participate in the competition, which will open soon.
