Asia's ageing mega-trend: Big challenges, big opportunities


Asia and the Pacific could soon be home to the world's largest number of elderly people, with an elderly population projected to reach 1.3 billion by 2050. This poses significant socio-economic and political implications for governments and societies. But it also presents innovative businesses with a host of new opportunities if they can turn this challenge on its head.

This session, presented with the United Nations Population Fund, UNFPA, will explore current ageing demographics as well as policies and workforce issues across the region. Businesses will present practical case studies as to how they are seeking to adapt more effectively by managing and leveraging opportunity - and, in the process, changing mindsets by re-defining what population ageing means today.
