Tapping Technology to Maximize the Longevity Dividend in Asia

This report explores the role of technology in providing solutions to some of the key labor market challenges that Asian countries with progressive aging must face in order to boost productivity and sustain growth and development.

Asia is graying rapidly: its share of senior population aged 65 and over will double from 9.2% in 2020, to 18% in 2050. Some countries will experience a drastic reduction of its working-age population (ages 15–64), as well as aging of the current workforce. This report explores the role and potential of technology in addressing economic and labor market opportunities and challenges posed by aging. It shows how technology can harness gains from the longevity dividend and draws together national and regional policy recommendations for countries in Asia and the Pacific.
