In 2018, "The Longevity Summit: Is Asia ready for 100?" will build on this momentum to foster thinking on the topic of "living to 100". More than 160 Asian business leaders, political decision-makers and health-care entrepreneurs will assemble to discuss how best to engage Asia's over-60 population in the productive economy and how stakeholders can foster healthier, longer-living societies.
Critical topics to be discussed include:
How are the interests of individuals, governments and businesses aligning around longevity?
Can developing countries establish 'ageing in place' infrastructure and community care rather than expensive inpatient hospital systems?
What can other countries learn from the policies and ideas already being implemented to ease the burden of ageing around the region?
How are employers engaging older workers to stay longer in the labour market?
What's stopping longevity-enthusiasts and entrepreneurs from successfully executing on their business strategies?
