Joo Hyung Han, Founder and President, 50+ Korean
“The Future of Aging in South Korea: Improving Lives through the Longevity Economy”
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.
Reception to follow.
