Senior citizens are over the age of 50. According to a new population forecast, the population of those aged 50 or older is by 29 percent to about 14 million in 2010, only ten years after first exceed 20 millions. Government enforced the senior-friendly industry promotion act, which we hope would bring about the betterment of the quality of senior citizens and the sound growth of the national economy by supporting and promoting industries friendly to senior citizens. Entertainment, tourism, and cultural activities are most important factors on improving the life satisfaction of senior citizens. Higher living standards are allowing people to live longer and better. We have no choice but to throughly prepare for the society that will gradually grow older and older. Above all, leisure programs and facilities have to be developed and expanded for seniors both in private and public sector. Second, leisure voucher/gift card systems should be executed for senior citizens. Third, related agencies designate and indicate exemplary leisure products and senior-friendly business operator. Therefore, leisure industries play a important role in improving quality of life of seniors, senior-friendly products and services. Finally, the administrative agencies related to senior-friendly industries should cooperate each other and make more efforts in development of leisure industries.
