SHANGHAI, Oct. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Population ageing is a global trend - China became an ageing society 10 years ago.

This demographic process will continue and is set to peak around 2030. Thanks to this trend, the care of senior citizens in China is a market experiencing significant growth. The market, now estimated to be worth RMB 1 trillion, is expected to grow to RMB 8 trillion by 2050.

Major topics include care models, operation management, rehabilitation and nursing, innovative technology, promoting the development of different care models in China and the Asia region. The event will bring together private sector businesses from different backgrounds and regions looking at successful business models, management advice and investment opportunities in China and overseas.
