 July 26, 2022  

China: According to a media report on Monday, China’s population will reach negative growth by 2025 and may continue to decline for more than a century. The research emphasized the need to improve the population’s general quality and alter economic development plans to solve the issue.

According to Yang Wenzhuang, director of population and family affairs at the National Health Commission, the growth rate of China’s overall population has slowed significantly and is predicted to go negative during the current 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021–25). Yang made this statement on Thursday at the Annual Conference of the China Population Association.

Chinese demographers anticipated that decreasing population growth would predominate in the upcoming years for a considerable amount of time and that population quality would generally improve.
