Presentation Theme: “ Prospect of Aged People's Employment in Long-lived Society - focusing on Korea-Japan Comparison "

While Japan is the most aged country in the world with aged people reaching at more than 20% of the whole population, Republic of Korea is now catching up at even faster pace than Japan. Other countries in East Asia will face this problem in the near future too. Therefore, Japan's policy towards the aged society, though not perfect, can be a model for the countries in East Asia, creating the region's 21st century of cooperation in the common aged societies and overcoming the 20th century of confrontation, division, and invasion. This seminar especially aims to be an occasion for discussing the prospect of Korea-Japan solidarity in the new issues of aged society
