We relaunched Asia Pacific newsletter with a new look and new name – Connect, which better reflects our network approach. In this first refresh issue, the feature article is on the National Transfer Accounts (NTA). This is a methodology to estimate the flows of economic resources across generations – from childhood to old age using two variables, consumption and labour income. Further exploring how the NTA can be used in developing policies on ageing, we interviewed Sang-Hyop Lee, senior fellow at the East-West Center and the key contact for the NTA project in Asia. Stories from the network members in Bangladesh, China, Myanmar, Nepal, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam are reported. Major regional events are also covered.
