VTV.vn - The World Bank released its Live Long and Prosper: Ageing in Vietnam report on Vietnam’s population and labour force for the coming period at an event in Hanoi yesterday.

According to the report, Vietnam is one of the fastest ageing countries in the world, with an expected 18% of the population, or 18 million people likely to be 65 years of age or above by 2040. The country’s ageing speed is triple that of the US, and six times higher than France’s. The World Bank has suggested Vietnam can increase the workforce’s minimum age, improve the pension system and improve care for the elderly. Local Community Clubs models were also proposed as one of the methods to support the elderly ./.
