The Future of Retirement in East Asia

  • Wednesday, Oct 10, 2012
  • As the world’s societies age, governments and businesses are trying to look ahead and anticipate the needs of tomorrow’s growing elderly populations. Nowhere is this more difficult to do than in emerging East Asia.  The CSIS Global Aging Initiative’s latest report, Balancing Tradition and Modernity: The Future of Retirement in East Asia explores the implications of rapid development and rapid aging for retirement policy and planning in the most economically and geostrategically important region of the emerging world. It is based on nationally representative surveys of workers and retirees conducted by the CSIS Global Aging Initiative in China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan.  We hope that you can join us at the policy forum for a discussion of the report’s findings.
