France soon to be have Super Aged Population

According to Moody’s latest report on population and investment by 2020 France will join a total of 13 countries globally with a population of more than 20 percent over the age of 65. This will make France a super aged country.

At the present moment in time there are only 3 super aged countries: Germany, Japan and Italy, however, 10 more countries will join this group in the next 6 years including France.

This increase in aging population has an impact on economic growth, Moody’s projects that growth in the working age population of the world during 2015-30 will only be half that of the growth during the previous 15 years (i.e. 13.6 percent vs. 24.6 percent).
