Lecture: “The Future of Aging in South Korea: Improving
Lives through the Longevity Economy
Speaker: Joo Hyung Han, Founder and President, 50+ Korean
South Korea is a ‘super aging’ society, confronting decades of accelerated longevity and steep declines in fertility. Dr. Han, Chairman of 50+ Korea, will challenge the audience to consider our futures by sharing entrepreneurial initiatives and business opportunities for Korean and Asian older adults. Working closely with both government and NGOs, Dr. Han’s leadership in the longevity economy has transformed the Korean experience of growing older in the last decade.
