The report stresses that as birthrates fall and life expectancy rises much of the emerging world is entering a period in which population trends.

This book discusses the societal and public policy challenges and reform options for the East Asia and Pacific countries as they address aging. The book aims to strike a balance between optimism and pessimism over aging. On the one hand, the impacts of aging on growth, labor markets, and public spending need not represent the unavoidable.

In this paper, I analyse the impact of population aging on saving in Asia (with emphasis on Japan and China) and obtain the following findings: population aging will lead to declines in household, private, government and national saving rates, but to the extent that population aging is accompanied by absolute declines in population, investment rates will also decline. Asia countries on average are expected to gain years. It is striking to note that East Asia will be home to three of the countries with highest longevity: Japan, Korea and China. POPULATION AGING. Chart 3 shows the rapid aging that is occurring in several Asian countries.

This report looks at the trends and emerging demographics in Asia. From tothe region experienced a major population boom, however, bythe to age group population.

The number of elderly in Asia will more than double by million against million in This publication addresses major policy implications of population ageing in Asia and the Pacific. Asia-Pacific countries could actually reap a “longevity dividend” if older people were enabled to work for longer, but in ways appropriate to their age.

Age-friendly employment policies, flexible retirement and investment in human capital, infrastructure and public services could help make this happen, alongside doing away with laws that.

Population trends in Asia and the Pacific The population in Asia and the Pacific is growing at less than 1 per cent per annum Inthe total population of the Asia-Pacific region stood at billion, which is 60 per cent of the world’s population.

Currently, there are billion in South and South-West Asia, billion in. taken lightly. The Asia-Pacific region is undergoing profound and rapid population changes. All countries and territories in this region are in the process of ageing at an unprecedented rate, although the timing and pace of this transition varies.

Population ageing will have immense effects on various socioeconomic issues, including poverty.

For these reasons, international labor mobility is emerging as an important development issue in East Asia with important implications for the Bank’s mission of poverty reduction and supporting.

Governments in Asia are generally poorly prepared for this vast change that will have wide social and economic consequences. "As the population dividend that fueled Asia's rapid growth becomes a tax, the region must find innovative ways to sustain economic expansion, and provide better support for its growing elderly population.".

This book provides contemporary regional science perspectives on population change and its socio-economic consequences in the Asia-Pacific region. This region is highly diverse in terms of key demographic indicators such as population size, growth, composition and distribution.

Across Asia Pacific, local governments are prioritising information and communications technology development as one of their key national reforms. Earlier infor instance, the Chinese government issued its 13th Five-year Plan.

• East Asia and Pacific is aging faster than any other region, posing risks for public finances and healthcare delivery, and increasing the challenges to sustained economic growth. • Managing aging requires womb-to-tomb policies addressing issues such as child care, education, employment practices, health care, and pensions.

A consequence of population aging is the decline in the ratio of the working age population to the elderly population. The world’s potential support ratio – or PSR, the total working-age population, aged 15 to 64 years, to those aged 65 years or older – has declined from 12 in to seven today.

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is committed to achieving a prosperous, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable Asia and the Pacific, while sustaining its efforts to eradicate extreme poverty. It assists its members and partners by providing loans, technical assistance, grants, and equity investments to promote social and economic development.
