Are demographics a big problem for Asia-Pacific cities?

Asian city economies were slowing down, even before Covid. While declines in working age populations will affect long term economic growth rates for many Asian cities, in many cases factors such as employment rates and movements in productivity growth will matter more.

In this comprehensive 9 page report you will learn:

  • Chinese cities including Beijing Shenzhen, and Guangzhou see the fastest population slowdown.
  • In some cities the pressure will be eased by increasing labour market participation. Chinese cities other than Shenzhen will see rising employment rates as will Australian cities.
  • Productivity will rise in Singapore and Tokyo, easing the problems created by flat or declining working age population and previous falls in productivity.
