Decreasing revenue and increasing expenditures due to population aging in developed Asian countries presents a major challenge to their fiscal sustainability. It also spotlights the serious fiscal burden the region’s developing countries with younger populations and less advance social protection systems could face in the long-term and corresponding need for improved social integration and sustainable development.

Co-organized by ADBI, the OECD, ASEAN+3 Macroeconomic Research Office, ADB, and Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia, this roundtable will examine the impact of aging populations on fiscal sustainability and the economic outlook. The event will also assess the development of appropriate policy responses to fiscal challenges arising from population aging.
