China’s Future Development: Demographic Trends and Challenges
Abstract of Workshop Presenter,
China’s demographic transition has brought about significant changes in the size and structure of the population and will considerably influence their future trends. While socio-economic development often faces many great uncertainties, China’s future demographic changes, especially those in the next quarter of a century are more predictable. These changes will provide a demographic backdrop for and have significant impacts on China’s future social economic development.
This presentation will systematically discuss China’s major demographic trends such as: further increase in total population, changes in age structure of the population and population ageing, large scale migration and rapid urbanization, the role and influence of population momentum, and their impacts on future society, economic growth and people’s life.
