China’s demographic crisis: Authorities try to reverse years of birth control policy • FRANCE 24

FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “China’s demographic crisis: Authorities try to reverse years of birth control policy • FRANCE 24” – below is their description.

The birth rate in the world’s most populous country, China, has fallen for a fifth consecutive year to hit a record low. The population is ageing and the workforce is shrinking. Despite ending the decades-long one-child policy, the baby boom officials had hoped for never materialised. These rapidly changing demographics foreshadow a crisis that could undercut the country’s economic and social stability.
