TOKYO -- Chinese and South Korean academics on Monday stressed the need for structural reforms and government policy changes to counter the effects of graying demographics in both countries.

The experts were taking part in a panel discussion on dwindling birthrates and aging societies at Nikkei's 22nd International Conference on The Future of Asia in Tokyo. Participants from Thailand and the World Bank also offered their perspectives on the theme.
