The International Social Security Conference (ISSC) is an annual conference organised by the Employees Provident Fund of Malaysia and serves as a knowledge sharing platform covering social security and retirement matters. The ISSC 2016 will be co-hosted by State Street, one of the leading global investment banks and will take place in Kuala Lumpur, the capital city of Malaysia from 10 to 11 August 2016.
Themed ‘Active Ageing: Live Long and Prosper', the 2016 ISSC aims to raise the awareness of holistic ageing paradigm, with a view to promote and empower Malaysians in leading their third age productively and with dignity. Experts from Denmark, Canada, Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore as well as notable individuals are invited to share their experiences, ideas and success stories with participants.
The ageing phenomenon is not occurring in developed countries only. The population in Asia is rapidly ageing. By 2050, the Asian population age 60 and above will be doubled from 11 per cent in 2010 to 24 per cent. Embracing a new retirement concept and proactive engagement towards building age-friendly communities in the region are vital in adapting to the changing demographics.
Some of the areas to be covered in ISSC 2016 are Happiness and Quality Life in Retirement; The New Definition in Retirement; Your Retirement Aspiration: Making It a Reality; Developing Age-Friendly Cities and Communities; and Future of Ageing: The Role of Science and Technology.
