Opening Session: How public policy could facilitate a robust elderly care industry?
11:00 - 12:15
主論壇 Summit Stage
在某些國家，例如日本，其三份之一的國內生產總值 (GDP) 是和老年產業有關。私營機構應調整固有的想法，並積極研究熟齡人士日益增長的經濟能力和他們未被充分利用的資源。
Population ageing presents huge challenges but also ample opportunities. Such opportunities will not be fully utilised unless business leaders act now to prepare for this demographic shift. In some countries, such as Japan, one third of their GDP is related to elderly business. The private sector should adjust its thinking and look into the growing economic power and under-utilised resource of matured adults. At the same time, public policy guidance plays a critical role in engaging the private sector to tackle this unprecedented issue. Will public-private partnership, tax benefits, etc, be good incentives to attract more investment into the elderly market? It is time for policy-makers, business leaders, and citizens to come together and strike a balance between the interests of investors and taxpayers in meeting the elderly care challenge.
