Vietnam faces challenges of aging society
An aging population is presenting many challenges for Vietnam as the country’s social security system is still in its early stages and its economic resources are limited, delegates said at the Aging Summit 2022 in Ho Chi Minh City on November 29.
Le Thu Huyen at the ILSSA said Vietnam has officially entered the “ageing phase” since 2011 and is projected to become an “aged” society by 2036. Vietnam is one of the most rapidly ageing countries in the world. This requires a comprehensive policy framework that applies to all population groups to prepare for an aged society in the near future, she said.
