Portugal’s minister for welfare, Vieira da Silva, has said that the challenges posed by the
country’s ageing population demand inclusive and sustainable policies for people of all ages.

He said these policies “must ensure healthy lives”, attain gender equality and promote “changes to the labour market, social protection systems and health care services.” Speaking at a UN conference on active ageing being held in Lisbon, he said that the increased life expectancy had “important long-term social, territorial and economic implications.”
