The Deputy Prime Minister and Treasurer, the Hon Wayne Swan MP and the Minister for Mental Health and Ageing, the Hon Mark Butler MP announced the establishment of the Advisory Panel on the Economic Potential of Senior Australians on 30 March 2011.

The objective behind establishing the Panel is to identify and respond to the economic and social opportunities that are presented by an older population.

The Panel will look at participation in its broadest perspective, to ask how Australia can best harness the life experiences and intellectual capital of senior Australians.

The Panel has been asked to address the central question "What new opportunities will arise in the future with a larger, and more active, community of senior Australians?"
