Japan’s experience as a such society with the world’s highest life expectancy, and its great need for solutions, exemplifies the urgency of the problem. As UK organizations including the government also recognize challenges and opportunities of the ageing society, Japan and UK are actively cooperating and having discussions on this subject.
