In conclusion, all five major metropolitans in Taiwan (Taipei City, New Taipei City, Taichung City, Tainan City, and Kaohsiung City) are all facing the imminent age population problem, and all of the five civil governments are in the initial phase of putting into place their own age-friendly city policies. To design individual future agefriendly city projects, the year 2015 is expected to be a key threshold where Taiwan will be entering into an aged society by any definition. Therefore, all public sectors in Taiwan are now aiming to better prepare for this impending demographic trend.
