Greece is taking steps to stop the population decline, the prime minister says

Prime Minister Kiriakos Mitsutakis warns that the rapid aging and declining birthrate of Greece’s population poses a significant threat to the country’s growth potential, and the National Council’s mission is to reverse the deteriorating trend of demographics. Announced the founding.

“We are not addressing threats to national identity, but are directly challenging the country’s ability to generate wealth at the individual and collective levels, thereby maintaining a social structure that connects people,” Mitsutakis said. Said at a meeting in Athens.

“Danger is imminent and serious,” he said.

Greece’s population is expected to decline over the next 20 years, but the 10-year economic crisis has highlighted the problem primarily due to the migration of 450,000 working-age people.

At the same event, the conservative Prime Minister announced plans to extend the opening hours of kindergartens and primary schools in the country to 6 pm.
