       9. Summary of key findings and main policy recommendations
       / 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.
