The number of births in Hong Kong hit a record low last year, falling below 40,000 for the first time in more than five decades, with experts warning of wide-reaching implications for the city’s ageing population.⁠

They said the trend would result in shrinking enrolment at every level of education, eventually affecting manpower supply in future.⁠

The latest data from the Census and Statistics Department showed that only 38,684 babies were born last year, sliding 8 per cent from 2020. That not only marked the seventh consecutive year of decline, but also the lowest point since official figures became available in 1966.⁠
