n this inaugural edition of the Redefining Hong Kong series, we focus on the pressing issues surrounding Hong Kong's ageing population and the emergence of the silver economy.
As the Asian economy and population mature, Hong Kong stands at the forefront of navigating the challenges and opportunities presented by the silver surge. By 2050, individuals aged 60 or above are projected to comprise over 40% of Hong Kong's population, highlighting the urgency to address the silver economy's potential and the associated burdens on healthcare, housing, transportation, and social welfare.
During the half-day event, we explore how the government intends to tackle these challenges amidst the global economic slowdown. Additionally, we delve into the rising opportunities for the private sector and the importance of public-private collaboration in creating an age-friendly society.
