The Effect of Population Aging on the Japanese Economy and Society: A Case of Vietnam

Tan Hoi Huynh

Abstract

Population aging is an urgent problem facing many countries globally. It is happening at different rates in many regions. This process is happening more rapidly in developing countries, including countries with young populations. This changing process constantly brings challenges and dynamic opportunities in many economic, cultural, political, and social fields in life. The aging population is one of the most important trends of the twenty-first century. Speaking of this issue, first of all, to mention Japan. Japan ranks 11th in the topmost populous country in the world and is also one of the countries with the highest population life expectancy in the world. Due to social and economic problems, many young Japanese currently tend not to marry or have children, causing the fertility rate to drop sharply. With a low birth rate and high life expectancy, population aging is quickly becoming a serious problem for Japan. This paper analyses the challenges that Japan is facing and draws mention of some solutions for developed countries, including Vietnam. The results of the article show that developed countries like Vietnam need to consider more about olicies and plans for the long term in the future.
