Hong Kong 2014

Hong Kong is getting old. With the second highest life expectancy in the world, only Japan has higher, the issue of what people do once they retire is now of vital importance for a healthy and balanced society.​


FACTS 


30% of people aged 65+ in HK live below the poverty line. 
13% of the population are 65+ years old today, 2013.   
25% of the population are 65+ years old by 2030 
50% of elderly are now living in subsidized housing. 
Hong  Kong's  elderly  are  not  only  the  poorest  people  in  the  city;  they  are  among  the  poorest  in  the  developed world. 
With  the  housing  market  in  HK  is  monopolized  by  developers,  the  issue  of  housing  and  the  elderly  is  critical for the future of HK’s society.
