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.
