Languages of publication
The purpose of this paper is to investigate the impact of demographic tendencies on the long-term economic development in selected former-Soviet republics (Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan), and Poland by 2035. In light of the constant increase in the number of population in Central Asian countries by then, their sustainable growth seems to be stable in the following decades. However, the forecasts either for Azerbaijan or Poland are far less propitious. Therefore, it is particularly necessary to study the last reforms of pensions scheme there and compare their efficiency to the systems that either have already been established in Kazakhstan or are in an ongoing stadium in Uzbekistan. Hence, the in-depth analyses of all chosen countries either from demographic or economic perspectives should answer the question, whether the aging population may harm their longterm development in the assumed timeline.
