European Pensions for Switzerland
The Pensions Directive is technically still not part of the legal body of the EEA at this point. This technicality is expected to be removed by May of this year, however. Nevertheless, the Principality of Liechtenstein, with which Switzerland has close ties, is part of the EEA and plans to transpose the Directive into its law by 1 January 2007. We are keeping a close watch on what is happening in the neighbourhood.
