Proportion of Chinese Declines in Worldwide

China's proportion of the world population has now dropped from 22 percent of the global population to 19-percent over the past 30-years.

Li Bin, director of the State Population and Family Planning Commission, has made the revealation to mark the annual World Population Day yesterday.

The official says the central government plans to continue its policy of maintaining a low birth rate, while at the samem time, improve the quality of life for Chinese citizens.  

"China still has a vast population, which puts huge pressure on economic and social development, as well as the environment and resources. Moreover, a series of demographic problems have occurred, such as the decline of the working-age population, the aging problem and the imbalanced sex ratio of newborn babies."

According to China's latest census, there are 118 male births compared to 100 female ones here in China.

Meanwhile, UN officials are warning that the ever-rising world population is a global concern, as the population now believed to be just under 7 billion people right now.

Nobuko Horibe is director of the UN Population Fund's Asia and Pacific Regional Office.

"Although the population growth rate has been declining since the 1960s, the population itself has been growing. And over the last 12 years, we gained another one billion people. So the pace of adding this one billion has been very fast."

The UN expects the world's population will hit 7 billion people at the end of October, and plans to release a report a few days later on the challenges that come with dealing with a global population of that size.
