Many Asian economies will face a rapidly aging population. Some will also confront low birth rates. They need to control government expenditures to maintain fiscal soundness. The workshop will (1) discuss past and current age-related social security systems in Japan and present lessons for other Asian countries, and (2) examine current age-related social security systems in other Asian countries and recommend policies.
