The University of Pennsylvania will promote the Chinese tradition of filial piety to help find answers to handling China's rapidly aging population through a five-year research and service plan it announced on Friday. The program also includes more frequent personnel exchanges between China and the United States.

"We've come together to make a five-year commitment to studying eldercare in China and finding innovative solutions and doing that in a way that respects and reflects the Chinese tradition of filial piety," said John Dilulio, faculty director of Fox Leadership International, a program of the university.

"We are going to do these things in a way that reflects and respects the tradition of filial piety, which is central to the initiative."
