Singapore – CNBC will broadcast the first of a six-part special on the changing demographics in Asia beginning next September 23, 2013. The six-week series will broadcast on CNBC’s Squawk Box Asia and Cash Flow.
Across Asia, populations are greying rapidly. While this represents a huge challenge to policymakers, there are also opportunities. Over six weeks, CNBC will focus on the changing demographics in Asia, its impact on investments and how you should be saving on retirement.
