  • Industry-academia-government have proceeded collaborations as the increase in lifestyle diseases and dementia have become more serious in Japan. It is important for us to be a model of the aging society and to contribute to other countries, by sharing and disseminating our experiences to the world and developing them more with wisdoms from all over the world.
  • With this background, we, Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry have held “Well Aging Society Summit Asia-Japan” since 2018 under the cooperation with experts from Japan and the world. We aim to proceed information sharing internationally about healthcare and aging with this summit.
  • More and more efforts such as healthy diet, participation to the society, and prevention have been done to realize “well aging” which enables us to age healthy physically and mentally. Under this situation, these days, the importance of “well aging” has been recognized again, because it has been reported that people with underlying illness such as lifestyle disease tend to get more serious with infectious disease like COVID-19.
  • In 3rd Well Aging Society Summit, we will discuss about challenges, trends and solutions, which are changing or becoming apparent, in with/after COVID-19 situation all over the world.
