M’sia likely to become an aging nation in 2035

Sentuhan Bayu: Alamak!! I just retired by that year. hehehehe

KUANTAN: Malaysia is likely to achieve the ageing nation status by 2035 with the number of people above the age of 60 reaching 15% of the population, an official said, citing United Nations figures.


Welfare Department deputy director-general (Operation) Halijah Yahaya said, “In 2000, the number of elderly people was 1.45 million or 6.2% of the total population but in 2009, the number increased to 2.03 million or 7.1% of the total population.”

The United Nations categorises any country with 10% of its population above the age of 60 as an ageing nation.

Speaking at the opening of a seminar on caring society here yesterday, Halijah said the main factor contributing to the country’s ageing population was the decline in fertility and increase in life expectancy, which currently stands at 71.4 years for men and 76.2 for women.

“The Government should therefore view seriously the ageing rate among the population especially because old people have their own requirements,” she said. — Bernama
