As the world's societies age, governments and businesses are looking ahead to anticipate the needs of tomorrow's growing elderly populations. Nowhere is this more difficult to do than in Asia, where economic modernisation, changing cultural norms, and rapidly aging populations are transforming retirement behaviour and expectations.
Dr. Richard Jackson will present the findings of the report, Balancing Tradition and Modernity: The Future of Retirement in East Asia, which will be launched in Singapore at the lecture, and discuss ways to better understand the future if retirement in Asia, with particular focus on the Singapore findings. The report, commissioned by Prudential PLC, is a survey of workers and retirees in six major geographies in Asia - China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan. Dr. Jackson will present clear insights into the changing attitudes of the Asian population towards retirement and the issues associated with both demographic and cultural shifts. He will also present key strategic responses by governments and business that will better prepare societies for the changing needs of future retirees.
