Executive Council spokesman Leong Heng Teng said yesterday that the council has completed its discussion of a government-drafted bill on the framework for the protection of senior citizens’ rights. The bill aims to create a more senior citizen friendly society.

The council is the government’s top advisory body.

Addressing a press conference at Government Headquarters, Leong noted that the number of elderly people in Macau has been rising, adding that senior citizens are forecast to account for 20.7 percent of the population in 2036.

According to official statistics, senior citizens accounted for 9.8 percent of the population at the end of last year.
