Abstract

Indonesia and Malaysia will soon experience the consequences of an ageing population. Both
countries, however, are not yet prepared well for this major demographic change and have only
adopted few policies with regard to an ageing society. This article explains the features of and
the reasons for the demographic changes in Indonesia and Malaysia before it will analyse the
main policy challenges in a comparative perspective.
