The 2009 Ageing Report of the Committee of the Regions provides some interesting proposals for managing the ageing of populations in the European Union. The topic is very important given the fact that 9 out of the 10 countries with the oldest population in the world are EU Member States.
The report proposes three main priorities:
(1) healthy ageing;
(2) labour market participation and productivity; and
(3) access to services and facilities.
The idea is to merge those priorities in the Europe 2020 strategy.
