The Upside of Aging: Turning Headwinds into Tailwinds

Asia's aging experience is unlike the world has ever seen. The elderly population is expected to more than double in the next 20 years; it's faster, it's larger, and it's happening earlier than historical trends. But this growing, aging cohort presents tremendous opportunities, both as productive members of the labor force and as a large consumer class that will be a boon for economies and businesses. This panel explores how to harness demographic trends for productive and meaningful growth.
