200 million Chinese people will be over age 60 as of 2013, Zhu Yong, Deputy Director of China National Committee on Ageing, said on October 18th.

Currenly, we need to improve cultural construction for the ageing population, and help them to enrich their cultural lives, added Zhu.

Experts also fear that China would get aged before getting rich, and who will care the senior citizens, now that the only child is growing up and leaving the aged parents and family "an empty nest."
