/ Donghyun Park.
520 First, the expert contributors argue, Asia must find ways
to sustain rapid economic growth in the face of less
favorable demographics, which implies slower growth of the
workforce. Second, they contend, Asia must find ways to
deliver affordable, adequate, and sustainable old-age
economic security for its growing elderly population.
Underpinned by rigorous analysis, a wide range of concrete
policy options for sustaining economic growth while
delivering economic security for the elderly are then
presented. These include Asia-wide policy options -
relevant to the entire region - such as building up strong
national pension systems, while other policy options are
more relevant to sub-groups of countries.
