Australia-China Population Ageing Research Hub

From 2015-2019, with significant funding from UNSW, the Australia-China Population Ageing Research Hub undertook extensive research into the economic and health implications of population ageing in China, such as pension and social security reform, labour supply, and disability prevalence.

The Ageing Asia Research Hub has now been established to supersede as a research entity.

The Australia-China Population Ageing Research Hub was based at CEPAR's UNSW node, and our linkages with Chinese academe - including China Nine (C9) universities - and relationships with policy makers at all layers of government, made us uniquely placed to spearhead this initiative.

By 2030, China’s ageing population (65+) is estimated to rise by 68%, and by 2050 UN estimates are that it will have more people over the age of 60 than any other country. China therefore urgently needs to develop and establish firm and sustainable policies addressing retirement provision, health and ageing, and well-governed business practices.
