Seminar Focus on Aging Problems in Northeast AsiaThe 16th Northeast Asian Seminar on Aged People opened Tuesday in this capital city of coastal Zhejiang Province, in east China.
More than 100 delegates from China, Japan and the Republic of Korea (ROK) will participate in the three-day event to address priority issues of health care for old people.
Major topics of the seminar will cover the health status of aged people and measures to improve their living conditions and health standards.
