As one of the world’s most powerful economies, Japan has been actively involved in international trade. However, Japan is experiencing an aging population, which is the root of several social issues, including a shrinking population and economy. As the aging population is a severe problem not only in Japan but also in many other countries, this paper investigates the impact of age demographics on international trade. More specifically, the paper aims to analyze the effects of median age and age distribution on trade flows between Japan and its trading countries. The results indicate that age demographics affect bilateral trade with Japan at a statistically significant level.
