Video report: Healthcare, Nursing, and Employment in an Age of Living to 100 (Japan Research Institute Chairperson Yuri Okina)

post date : 2019.10.01

The percentage of Japan’s population that is 65 years old or over increased to 28.1% in 2018, and the population aged 75 or over reached 14.2%. With the ratio of seniors expected to reach 30% by 2025, senior employment and social welfare systems including healthcare and nursing, which have a major financial impact, are becoming a critical issue in this age of living to 100. What kind of measures should be taken to deal with these issues?


The FPCJ invited Dr. Yuri Okina, a researcher of financial systems, social welfare, and tax systems, member of a government council of healthcare and nursing experts, and chairperson of the Japan Research Institute, to discuss this topic.

The briefing had a total of 19 participants including journalists from Belgium, China, France Germany, Indonesia,  South Korea, Turkey, and the UK.
