Declínio da população da China acelera

By Ninian Carter

January 18, 2024 - As mortes relacionadas com a Covid poderão ter acelerado o declínio da população da China em 2023, mais desafios para um governo que já enfrenta uma deflação económica e uma crise do imobiliário

Covid-related deaths, brought about by China’s abrupt lifting of pandemic restrictions at the end of 2022, likely accelerated its declining population last year.

Figures released by the National Statistics Bureau show the population of China fell by 2.1 million people in 2023 – a downward trend that began in 2022 when its population declined by 300,000.

Deaths rose to 11.1 million last year, while births fell to 9 million – 30% of China’s population is expected to be aged 60 years or over by 2032.

The demographic shift poses long-term challenges to a government already dealing with deflation and a property crisis.
