China’s population to peak at 2040 before declining

 

Nearly one out of every four people in China will be older than 65 by the year 2050, demographers have forecast.
The country's population, currently 1.33 billion, will also not exceed 1.5 billion, Jiang Weiping, director-general of the China Population and Development Research Center, told a population forum on Wednesday.
The population will peak around the year 2040 at about 1.47 billion people before starting to decline, he said, citing a forecast from the center's population administration decision information system.
