Renowned Ageing Researchers in the Asia-Pacific region met at University of Southern California (USC) Davis School of Gerontology from 14-17 September 2014 to discuss the rapid demographic changes and its impact among the Pacific Rim economies. USC’s Provost and Vice-President Academic Affairs Elizabeth Garrett welcomed all participants in Los Angeles and stressed that ageing populations and its impact is of concern to all of us. Ageing populations are a challenge for politics and the society in each Pacific Rim economy. According to UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) the Pacific region hosts with Japan the oldest population in the world. In addition the region also hosts with Hong Kong the population with the lowest number of people under the age of 14 according to data of the World Bank. Other Pacific economies are not far behind like Korea, Singapore and also China is ageing on a fast track.
