Thai government is pushing active aging plan

 


 

At the latest National Elderly Person Committee Meeting chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Jurin Laksanawisit, Deputy government spokesperson Ratchada Thanadirek illustrated that Thailand’s elderly population, above the age of 60, has been rising up and almost 50 percent of them are unemployed or stopped working deliberately despite, still, having good health and capacity to work. The meeting is starting to promote the active aging plan, which focuses on providing and upgrading vocational skills for the elderly as well as designing jobs suitable for them and which help promote the ageing lifestyle. The plan also urges employers to hire more elderly staff by providing benefits, as well as encouraging seniors to sign up for the National Savings Fund (NSF) to foster sustainable financial management in old age.
