Voice of Asia, Third Edition
Edition three, Demography is shifting the balance of power in Asia, outlines how demographics will drastically reshape the economic environment in Asia Pacific over the rest of this century. There are three articles in this edition:
- Ageing Tigers, Hidden Dragons
- Asia’s growth on the cusp of change – driven by demographics
- Demographics under the spotlight, by country.
This edition looks at demographic changes occurring across Asia and how it will see India rise as an economic superpower, supplying more than half of the increase in Asia’s potential workforce over the coming decade. At the same time, Asia’s ageing population is rapidly ageing – by 2042 there will be more over-65s in Asia than the populations of the Eurozone and North America combined. However, for every challenge there are also significant opportunities for businesses to invest in what will clearly be growth sectors in coming decades.
