7 May 2019, London, UK: Aging Analytics Agency has published a new, 315-page open-access report “National Longevity Development Plans: Global Overview 2019 (First Edition)”, which delivers a comprehensive international overview of the projects, initiatives and efforts that different countries across the globe are making in order to combat the issues associated with Ageing Population and to promote the extension and maintenance of their citizens’ Healthy Longevity. It offers comprehensive profiles of relevant initiatives in the UK, Netherlands, Singapore, South Korea, Israel, Switzerland, Hong Kong, Japan, USA, Spain, the European Union and China, utilizing sophisticated analytical metrics to compare the overall strength, focus, proactivity and relevance of their projects to the problem of Ageing Population and the opportunity of Healthy Longevity.
In order to analyze the size, efficiency, and productivity of various Government-led Longevity projects and initiatives, the report uses a specifically-designed, multi-dimensional analytical framework that applies precisely-tuned weightings to a number of tangible, quantitative metrics and parameters, including measures relating to Longevity, Ageing Population and its effects on the national economy (such as life expectancy, health-adjusted life expectancy, GDP, healthcare efficiency, number of retirees projected insolvency dates of relevant programs such as social security and pension schemes, and many others).
The report also uses specific novel metrics unique to Aging Analytics Agency’s comparative analytics framework for this report, which applies specific importance factors to parameters in order to classify and prioritize specific types of initiatives, highlighting the unique strengths and focuses of each of the nations it profiles. In contrast to other reports that deliver overviews of past and current activities in a particular domain, this report utilizes analytical methods to classify and forecast the future prospects of countries to translate their Longevity-related efforts into tangible deliverables like increased Healthy Longevity and economic growth.
The purpose of the report is to provide an overview of government initiatives from around the world which were enacted in recognition of the demographic challenge each country faces, finding that the UK is the leader in government-led Longevity initiatives, owing among other things to a sizeable National Longevity Industrial Strategy in place, as well as its strengths as an international BioTech R&D and Financial hub. The report also charts how the nation can most successfully build upon its existing efforts in this direction, such as its listing Ageing Population as one of its four core Industrial Grand Challenges, and the allocation of £300 million to promote industry efforts focused on securing the nation’s position as the world leader in Healthy Longevity. While this leadership potential was arguably apparent even prior to the production of this report, the novel analytical approaches used in assessing the strength of various nations’ Longevity development initiatives around the world validates this notion quantitatively for the first time.
The report provides a tangible and pragmatic overview of the specific strengths and focuses of each country’s Longevity-related activities, showing which countries are the most Longevity-progressive, and which ones are not proactive enough to combat the challenges and realize the opportunities relating to Ageing and Longevity. Given that the Longevity Industry is one of the only sectors where there can be no competitors, but only collaborators, with each counter-parties’ efforts serving to further to global good of healthier, more productive lives, the report gives specific focus on promoting a greater degree of cross-sector collaboration both within nations’ own borders, as well as cross-border cooperation with countries whose unique strengths and resources can be allied for mutually-beneficial Longevity-focused international initiatives, learning from some countries’ mistakes, and working to implement the proven best practices of other countries to strengthen the collective Longevity-progressive efforts of all nations together.
