The UN Decade of Healthy Ageing will be powered by investment in the Silver Economy, now estimated at USD $17 trillion and is fostering innovation in biotech, health tech, fintech, and caregiving. In a global society where there are more old than young, overall economic growth is only possible with a robust, growing, and sustainable Silver Economy that will add jobs, create new innovative growth sectors, enhance productivity, and improve the lives of all across society.
