A third of the Cuban population will be over 60 years old by 2030, while more than 800 people currently are one hundred years old or more than that age, according to figures released in this capital on Saturday.
Matters linked to this topic are included in the agenda of the 5th International Congress of Satisfactory Longevity, a meeting to study cultural gerontology in order to give a proper life to the seniors.
The event will be held in Havana from May 22 to 25 and will be aimed at exchanging methods and ways to prolong life in a healthier environment, according to the expectations of each person.
According to Granma daily, in that meeting, the 120-year-old Seniors Club invites to the 3rd Centenarians International Meeting, in which Cubans over one hundred years old take part.
