Description: 

In discussing the presentation on the “Malaysian Case Study” by Tey Nai Peng, the presenter noted that Malaysia should seize the opportunity to strengthen its social protection program while the country’s first demographic dividend is positive. He further states that the second dividend can be brought about if consumers and policymakers respond effectively to impending demographic changes through the development of an old-age support system that substitutes capital for transfer wealth.
