Roundtable Series on Aging Populations

As nations across the world face the realities of unprecedented population aging, this series examines the resulting policy challenges. As large numbers of people age into retirement at the same time, what will it mean for health, work, and financial security? Are governments ready for this coming demographic trend? Similarly, are global institutions such as the G8 and G20 prepared to face the global implications of a graying world? This series of discussions will serve as a venue for policymakers, scholars, business professionals, and journalists to exchange ideas and reach conclusions on the challenges presented by what has been characterized as a "slow-burning fuse."


Ambassador Apakan's remarks, with brief introduction from Michael Hodin, from the meeting titled "Population Aging and Development: Opportunities for Economic Growth" held on September 7, 2012 can be found here.
