The first issue of the Country Report examines a new socio-political challenge for Vietnam: aging population. While in 1979, just under 7% of Vietnam's population was 60 years and older, it is estimated that the figure will rise to 26% by 2049. The transition from an on average young and growing population to an older and perhaps even declining population is an ambivalent process: It opens new opportunities, but also poses numerous challenges for Vietnam. The 1st Country Report attempts to provide an in-depth picture of demographic changes and their consequences in Vietnam as well as Vietnam's policy responses to these changes.
