Forum for Greater China: An Aging Population

Over the past two decades, Washington University has developed close partnerships with China Agricultural University, Fudan University, Peking University, Tsinghua University, and Xi’an Jiaotong University through its McDonnell International Scholars Academy.

Today, the university is positioned to have an even greater presence and impact in China with the Forum for Greater China. This free, one-day conference is an opportunity for business leaders, high-level Chinese officials, and university administrators and alumni to explore important issues affecting China today.

The Forum’s goal is to stimulate collaborative research and conversation that will not only advance solutions to challenges, but also identify opportunities for future growth.

Washington University’s first Forum for Greater China will address the challenge of China’s aging population.

In the coming years, China will be tested as it faces a significant challenge: the nation’s aging population. China has the largest baby boom generation in the world, threatening its ability to meet 21st-century workforce needs.

University experts will lay out the social, economic, and medical implications of the issue through two keynote speeches, followed by panel discussions with leading U.S. and Chinese corporate, government, and educational leaders.
