The State Government has commissioned the preparation of a Mature Economy Business and Jobs Strategy to explore the emerging economic potential of South Australia’s ageing population.
The project will be led by South Australian economic expert Professor John Spoehr, in partnership with Professor Frank Wagner from the Stuttgart-based Fraunhofer IAO.
The strategy, the first of its kind in the nation, will identify new mature economy opportunities and clear actions for investment and innovation in this sector.
The strategy is part of the State Government’s vision to bring the community together to create an all-ages-friendly state as outlined in Prosperity Through Longevity: South Australia’s Ageing Plan, 2014-2019.
The Mature Economy Business and Jobs Strategy, funded through Office for the Ageing, is expected to be released in mid-2016.
