Description

The National Strategy for Population Ageing consists of the following two fundamental components:

- Strategy to prepare for population ageing, and;
- Strategy to improve the livelihood of older people.

The main purpose of the strategy to prepare for population ageing is to ensure future social security for the working age population by increasing employment of working age people and implementing an employment-sensitive economic policy.

The strategy addresses not only the issues of social welfare services for older people, but it also aims to eliminate any possible barriers to every individual's lifetime employment, entitlement to social protection, and exercise of his/her rights as a member of society by actively participating in social activities while ageing.
