China to reach 1.6 billion by 2050

In mid-March China’s State Family
Planning Commission announced it expected that nation’s population
to peak at 1.6 billion by 2050 and then begin to decline gradually.

According to an Agence France-Presse
report, “China’s population will begin to drop gradually in
the middle of the 21st century when the population structure becomes more
rational and due to better family planning, the commission said.”

Given China’s failure with its one-child
policy, the results of its renewed efforts to promote family planning
are questionable.
