As Asia ages, tight labour markets are squeezing business. The WHO estimates the health-care industry alone in South-East Asia needs to recruit an additional 4.7 million workers in coming years to keep up with demand. Countries like Singapore and Japan have made great strides in helping their populations cope with longevity. But across Asia, employers have been slow to accommodate older workers.
How can employers leverage the productive capacity of ageing societies? And, how are smart policymakers stepping up with age-friendly workforce reforms?
Join The Economist Events' Longevity Summit on September 27th in Singapore with more than 160 Asian business leaders, political decision-makers and health-care entrepreneurs to discuss how best to engage Asia's over-60 population in the productive economy and how stakeholders can foster healthier, longer-living societies.
