Bangladesh Expects Population to Expand to 180 million by 2020 - 2004-04-28


Bangladesh says its population will expand to 180 million people by the year 2020, if growth rates continue unchanged.

Health Minister Khondoker Mosharraf Hossain said Monday the latest studies show the country has 130 million residents now and is expanding at nearly one and one-half percent each year.

The official B-S-S news service quotes the health minister as saying the population boom is hurting development efforts and causing social unrest.

Bangladesh is already one of the most densely-populated countries in the world.
