Held by the Institute of World Economics and Politics (IWEP) of the Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences, the event offered a chance for scientists to exchange views on the trends and impacts of an aging population on economic development based on international experience and practice in Vietnam, and proposed solutions to cope with the current predicament.

Participants stressed the need to strengthen the role of socio-political and professional organisations in building, mobilising, and implementing policies for the aging population and the elderly; unifying the approach in researching and making related policies; and strengthening communications and education to raise public awareness of improving health care for the elderly.
